For over 15 years I have worked as a consultant in customer projects, lately mainly in government and financial sectors. During my career I have specialized in solution architecture, web development, and some MS Server products. I have worked with lots of interesting people on-shore and off-shore, and I get kicks from learning from them and to be able to coach them myself. Lately I have also started to widen the audience a bit by presenting for bigger audiences and by (finally) having my own blog.
I'm a strong believer of software quality and I try to enforce that with all the ways I can. At times that is hard in client facing timeboxed projects, but I do not see any other way in trying to keep our industry trustworthy.
I am Microsoft Certified Professional Developer for Enterprise Applications (MCPD EA 2 & 3.5, MCPD Web & Windows 4). Currently I work as a Chief architect at Basware.

Outdoor person, North Pole skier
Although strictly thinking this has nothing to do with my professional life, it still affects me as a person and coworker and thus is hard to leave unmentioned. I have done lots of sports in my life, and quite a lot of nice trips around the world. The ultimatum of this all was an unsupported expedition to the North Pole at 2006 with a group of seven skiers.
