About me

I am an entrepreneur and global citizen - lived in Estonia, Finland and Hong Kong. Passionate about connecting the best talent with amazing job opportunities across the globe. On a mission to help people create a life where they can combine adventures with professional development.

Hobbies

Traveling, reading, fitness training (half-marathon running, cycling, gym, powerlifting). In love with the digital world and its possibilities. Exploring the wonderful complexities of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in my blog.

Fun fact

I'm constantly making up new words, I have pretty much created my own language. To make things even more interesting, I mix Estonian, Finnish and English to my speech - I think my friends find it amusing (and a little confusing)!
