Hey, I’m Jouni.

I moved to the Austrian Alps, to Zillertal in Tyrol exactly, in 2012 after 12 years at Nokia, once the greatest mobile phone company in the world.

I loved the freedom back then, skiing and climbing as much as possible, which eventually took to me to work in a climbing gym and for a few ski businesses.

I’ve always wanted to learn new things and when I had the most beautiful alpine landscape around me, I picked up a camera and learned photography. That led to starting my own business in 2015.

Soon thereafter, I made a comeback to software development and am freelancing now on web development and online marketing, along with photo assignments.
