Hey!

How exciting for you to have come across my website! There might not be a lot in here, but lets not let that get in the way of things.

For the record, this is my face. It would be weird otherwise.

I don't know why it is that you've come across this site, but while you're here I figured I'd give you a brief introduction. Or it might not be brief - look, to be quite honest I don't really know what your definition of brief might be.

My name is Ville. I would love to say I go by many nicknames but due to my very specific set of creative skills I've decided to roll with the one my parents generated for me in most places. You may even have come across me somewhere on the interwebs. Or it might have been someone else, my name isn't really all that unique.

To spare you the rest of your afternoon, I'm just going to rapid-fire you the usual details people often give out in these. I guess you could say these are fun facts. Unless you and I disagree on what qualifies as fun.

  • I am most likely 26 years old, I might forget to update this
  • I live with my two cats in Finland (you should come visit sometime!)
  • I prefer stairs over elevators and escalators
  • I don't have a favourite genre of music, but these are some of my favorite songs though
  • I often mix British and American English in writing
  • I know a non-zero amount of things about a lot of things
  • I like space and comedy, especially space comedy
  • I like some sports, such as:
    • Cycling
    • Swimming
    • Running

I am also intrigued by photography which I'm hoping to pick up later. Once I do, you can expect to find my photos on this very site, so definitely stay tuned. But not too tuned, that's not healthy for you.

Currently I work as a software engineer at Vaisala, and while I'm most definitely biased, it is a company like no other to work for. Our technology is used globally to help improve life in many areas from weather observations to helping assure quality at various production facilities including in medicine and foodstuffs. We also have our sensors onboard the NASA Curiosity and Perseverance rovers, exploring the red planet in our solar neighborhood!

I could probably write a lot more in here, but I doubt most would read on for much longer. If you'd like to continue the conversation, hit me up on LinkedIn or send me an email at ville@vhx.fi, I'd love to hear from you too!

In the meanwhile, I hope there's something interesting on my site for you to see and maybe even learn from. If not, I will leave you with a picture of my cats, I hope it will cheer your day!

Thanks for reading!
Best regards,
Ville
