Who am I?

Glad you asked! I’m a 21-year-old Finnish college student who started at an engineering university last fall. This is my blog where I will write about my interests in life. Right now these include poker, investing, coding, and a myriad of other things. 

I would describe myself as a driven (but incredibly absent-minded) individual. I have grown up in an environment that has always encouraged entrepreneurship and that’s why I want to start my own business. This blog is a platform for me to simultaneously share the experiences of a new entrepreneur and hopefully gain some visibility. 

I have decided that I don’t want to live the nine to five life. I want to be financially independent and have the freedom of not having to work at a job that isn’t rewarding. 

I figured out that the best way to live the life that I want is by investing and working on ways to improve myself. I want to build wealth and I want to do it with multiple different sources.

This blog is for me to share the different projects I’m undergoing and to inspire other people to try different things in their own life. My main writings are going to be about


A hobby that I fell in love with when I was 17 and which I destroyed my friends in: Had to stop playing for a couple of years because of applying to college and doing a year of mandatory military service.


A newly found interest which I have always thought to be difficult and that’s what kept me from learning it years ago. I’m going to post different projects that I have done and resources that have helped me along the way.


Investing and FIRE have become trendy nowadays and I love the concepts. Making enough money to retire early seems like a worthy goal to pursue. The road to reaching FIRE is a long one, especially as a college student with pretty much no income. I hope to show other people how they can enrich their lives and bank accounts .


This is where I’m going to write about pretty much anything. Maybe I decide to do some speed cubing and want to share it here. Or maybe I would like to document how my typing speed is evolving. This is where all the crazy ideas will go.

So this blog is for me to share how I view the world and hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I enjoy writing it. This is also a venue for me to discuss the topics I’m interested in, so by all means comment your thoughts in the comment section below every post. I look forward to answering any questions you might have in the comments!

If you want to see what I have been doing lately go to The site is in Finnish, so don’t let that scare you.
