As a kid I lived abroad with my parents in Russia and Germany. After high school I moved to the Netherlands to study and work. I am now back in Helsinki, Finland, where I am from, and inhabit a small city center apartment with my boyfriend and cat. I work as a project manager in a service design agency. In my spare time I play basketball. I love to travel and aim to take at least one longer vacation every year, spiced up with a few weekend get-a-ways here and there. Some of my favorite destinations (so far) include Japan, Bali and the Sahara. When travelling, I want to experience local culture and to get (a mental and a physical) break from my usual day-to-day life.
