Howdy. I was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario and along with being a Canadian, I'm also Finnish. I've lived in Waterloo and Toronto in Canada, Denver and Brooklyn in the States and briefly in Tokyo. I primarily work in internet security, but I also have a radio show devoted to film and TV soundtracks.
I love to wander the earth and along with treks in nature, I like to live like a local wherever I go and try foods, drinks and culture that I haven't seen before. In the past year, I went to DC and Dallas for work -- Texas is a mighty fun state to explore -- and spent a few weeks travelling through Chile, Argentina and Uruguay. Buenos Aires was quite eyeopening, as was past highlights like New Zealand, Iceland and Berlin.
I'm curious and humble, though when I get excited, I express myself demonstratively. I will fumble my way through new languages and rely on maps as a rough guide to see the world with my eyes and ears.
