In English

I am a 50-year-old IT professional running for Tampere City Council. I have more than 25 years of international experience in software development consulting and product development. Having lived in different countries and cultures, I have wide understanding how societies work and what are good and not as good ways of organizing public affairs.


My main themes for the elections are related to education, science and technology, which I believe, are crucial for the success of Tampere in the future. I would like to develop Tampere to the direction of a recognized international science and university city.
