I’m interested in what we should do using technology. Both in the practical sense, of what’s the most prudent use of tech to reach real-world goals, and in the ethical sense of what’s right.

I’ve worked as a teacher, programmer, consultant, project manager, IT Architect and CTO. Currently, I’m an Information System Architect for Research IT at University of Turku. I design the technical side of research platforms, such as Flavoria, a lunch restaurant that incorporates smart scales and multi-sensory environments.

I’m a founding member of Suotava Oy (Oughtness Inc), who specialize in ethical IS consulting. I also run a small-time IT consultancy firm called eDeus, where I try to keep up with what’s new in practical web development.
