I am an experienced marketing executive with 10+ years of proven track record leading international teams responsible for strategic marketing, communications and business development at technology-centric companies.
For the past ten years, I've worked scaling global software brands across Asia, Europe and the US; always with a strong focus on growth marketing, strategic branding and customer centric processes. I am the founder of the Tech x Marketing Network in Helsinki, which is the largest community of marketing executives in Finland. Additionally, I was the founder of Google Developers Finland, which was started in 2010 and is today the largest community of developers in the Nordics.
I hold a M.Sc. in Service Design and Engineering, with a specialization in business management & innovation. Additionally, I have a B.Sc. in Computer Science, with a major in embedded systems and real-time programming.
Startups and open communities are one of my biggest passions. I have founded several startups myself, e.g., back in 2011 I built a mobile service for diabetics in just six weeks, raised a $10k pre-seed round and won the Summer of Startups competition. I love everything related to technology startups, experience design, artificial intelligence, Sci-Fi and astrophysics.
