- User centered designer, MSc. (University of Tampere)
I am a usability practitioner with experience in designing successful software products. Latest, I founded Fluxitek with a partner in 2010. ForceProof, our materials testing software product, is now mature and commercially successful; we have a growing base of customers in Finland, Sweden and Germany.
I am endlessly curious to learn about other people's work; great design comes from empathy that is based on research and dialogue.
- Skilled UI developer
- Nearly ten years of experience in software development and fifteen years in web design have made me familiar with various technologies and frameworks. In addition to the usual suspects like C++ (Qt, MFC), Java and JS, I have completed projects in XSLT, MetaEdit+, Visual Basic, QML, and so on. Even in UI design, I often end up doing actual UI prototypes instead of a paper mockups for usability testing. So I understand the restrictions various different platforms place on design.
