Software Engineer & Team Lead

I am a 37-year-old father, software engineer and team lead from Helsinki. Vice member of Helsinki city council and Vice-Chair of the Helsinki’s Digitalization Committee. I’m a candidate in municipal elections and member of Kokoomus party. I live in Hermanni, Vallila neighborhood.

Can you vote

Everyone living in Helsinki should have a say in how Helsinki is built and into what it’s made, and how our capital will grow to be the most attractive place in Scandinavia to live, visit and work in.

The election will be held on 13th June 2021. Advance voting starts on 26 May to 8 June for those voting locally; and from 2 to 5 June for persons voting abroad.

In my work, I spend a lot of time working to make software and systems work. I also want to think of the city as a whole, which is developed by the functionality of everyday life above. Whether it is the services used by the townspeople, urban urban life or sustainable growth, Helsinki must be developed for the people of Helsinki.

Functional Helsinki

> Let’s make Helsinki a model city of digitalisation, where various digital solutions work and are accessible by everyone in the city

> Creating conditions for citizens for a comfortable and smooth everyday life, where the pieces fit together well near and far

> Let’s build Helsinki by more urban density, more higher buildings – without forgetting neighbouring nature

> Fight climate change through practical climate action, as urban action has a major impact
