I'm the project lead for OSA - Open Source Archive. My work is to architect the solution while keeping all the parts together. I also spread the word on open source, agile and user driven development. Currently, I work for Mikkeli University of Applied Sciences and have worked as a software consultant and developer in the past. I like to experiment and hack, while my two cats in turn like to hack my electric wires and warm up on the devices.
