Helsinki, Finland

I'm an early morning riser, late-night researcher, lover of steep mountains and milk tea. When the tea pot's empty, you're likely to find me exploring something new to write about on my travel blog. One of my dreams is to someday write on assignment for National Geographic Magazine.

Doctoral researcher in entrepreneurship and technology commercialization at EPFL, currently looking at founder identity and the origins of value creation.

Co-founder of a resource allocation technology company, currently in asset management, excited about devoloping sustainable business models, user experience design, and co-creation.

38 countries, 5 languages and counting... I strive to embrace life's journeys in pursuit of the positive and with the conviction that no journey is wasted.
