I work as a medical nurse in the emergency department in Sotkamo, Finland. I met Taimi through work. We are often on the same shifts and respond to the same calls. We also row at the same rowing club in a church boat.
I do various sports. In the winter I ski and go to the gym. In the summer I row, do orienteering and spend a lot of time in nature. During autums I spend a lot of my free time in the forest hunting.
Fin-Est Friendship Rowing is the first project of its kind I am involved with. I am a beginner in this area. My task in this project is to support Taimi and advise her training in Finland. I also fill the role of the nurse when we will be crossing the gulf. I am very happy and grateful that I have an opportunity to be part of this awesome project!
