About

Me

I'm a Finnish 2001 born skate- and snowboarder. I've been skateboarding since 2008 and snowboarding since 2009. My current sponsors are Völkl Snowboards (Völkl GmbH & Co. KG), Skullcandy Finland, Talma Glacier and Sinne Youth Boardshop. My snowboarding sports club is Pakastin Helsinki. I live in southern Finland and my homeresort is Talma. It's quite small, but big enough for halfpipe and slopestyle! When I'm not snowboarding, skateboarding, at school or doing my homework, I'm most probably spending time with my friends, playing drums or PS3 gaming. My favourite game series is Skate (1, 2 and 3). My favourite artist is Bob Marley and my favourite food is noodles (and cheeseburgers).

As my view of life, I'm following the "one love" ideology. It refers to the universal love and respect expressed by all people for all people, regardless of race, creed, or color. The source of the ideology is the rasta movement.
