We have four members in our family. So, I have young lovely wife and two kids (5 years girl and 3 years boy). We live in Jämsänkoski, which is small town (6000 inhabitants) beside of Jämsä.

About my hobbies: My favourite hobbies are related to nature sports like skiing (cross-country/downhill), skating, cross-country cycling and canoeing. I like to compete in cross-country skiing and adventure events.
