I'm a double master's degree student at University of Tampere, in Finland, majoring in Information Studies and Interactive Media (with specialization in Internet and Game Studies), and Philosophy. I also have a Finnish subject teaching qualification for philosophy, psychology, and life stance education.

Over the years, I have also managed to gather eight minors: in Adult Education and Education, Asian Studies, Computer Science, Hypermedia, Media Culture, Media Education, Psychology, Social Sciences, and Life Stance Education. I'm also deeply interested in Astronomy, Biology, Cosmology, and Neuroscience.

My most notable side project is a plan to write a trilogy of multidisciplinary books on global humanity; the first one focusing on epistemology and morality.

I tend to characterize myself as a scientific skeptic. I like writing and learning about the world we inhabit, mainly by reading a lot of non-fiction and consuming massive amounts of educational content on YouTube, Coursera, and edX. I also enjoy exercising almost daily, along with trying to eat healthy.
