General information

I am a university student living in Helsinki, Finland.

What do I do? Different kinds of things. I like to talk about philosophy and politics (and political philosophy!) among other things, and I also like to write about them when I find the time.

If you want to know what I have been doing or thinking about recently, read my journal. For a more general picture of how I spend my time, explore the site.

I am also an owner of a company.


Right now I am taking the first steps of my doctoral research project on Machiavelli in Social and Moral Philosophy at the Department of Political and Economic Studies at the University of Helsinki. During my Master’s studies I also spent a year at the Computer Science department, in case you are wondering about some of the geekier pages on the site.

In 2007 I spent the Spring studying in Florence in the Università degli Studi di Firenze within the Erasmus program; you can take a look at my blog to read about it.

Internet presence

I have accounts on several sites (although I may not actively use all of them):
