I currently work as a youth worker at the City of Valkeakoski Youth Services. Technology has always interested me in one way or another, and before embarking on my current career path I wanted to become an engineer. However, I decided quite early on that I would rather work with people than machines. My interest in all things digital stuck, however, and my master’s level studies in community pedagogy ignited the spark to take a new approach to digital youth work. In my spare time I like to sing in a choir and bird watch. The theatre is also close to my heart.
