About me:

Living in the universe and working to make a positive impact on this planet.

I'm an alumni of Singularity University Graduate Studies Program 2013. Singularity University aim's to solve the world's greatest challenges by leveraging exponential technologies. The flagship program GSP chooses 80 participants yearly to attend at NASA Ames Research Center, California. Our spinoff project C-cool uses biological waste/side products to make clean carbon for industry and agricultural purposes.

Previously, I helped build Rails Girls into a global network introducing women to programming, and launched the first Pioneers future technology Festival in Vienna in 2012. I've also played a core team role in growing the entrepreneurial community in Helsinki from 2011 onwards.

Lifelong scout!
