I am one of the people who love the why of things.

I am a freelance writer, communications specialist, a general constructor, and a musician. Roxbury, Boston – renowned for its place at the very forefront of American history has been my quarters for excellence and continued learning.
To date, I have driven a thousand miles along the back roads of America to study construction engineering and management in Stanford University, California. But before that, I have switched my major no less than 4 times and held 10 part- time jobs.
In 2000, I moved to New York, where I worked as a freelance writer up until now, before realizing that I did not care when Google was born. At that point, I was just ripe for discovering the manifestos of the Constructionist’s such as Ken Garland’s “First Things First” declaration. You must know that I dig design as a method of education and empowerment. This is the reason why I engaged in the construction industry.
While I am not occupied in coordinating construction for physical objects, and providing work oversight, I find generous time to share what I know through writing, and now, blogging. I write about a range of topics including saving money tips, home improvement, and the construction business. I have established some design programs and write-ups, which got featured in CBS News and NBC Southern California News.

After midnight, I make mix tapes and audio loops, and perform in a small bar owned by my sister in Helsinki. I am currently finishing my last set of aviation classes, and a book about home improvement, which I’m hoping to get published. At some point in the future, I plan to go off the grid, and live in Malibu.
