Why you should listen

I have been given many titles, such as inventor, author, composer, keynote speaker, futurist and visionaire. I'm a classically trained composer by education, became an entrepreneur at a young age. I have also studied at Singularity University, a think tank in Silicon Valley. While in California, I co-founded a non-profit, 360ed, that develops AR apps for education sector in developing countries – the company is now run and operated in Myanmar. My own invention, MusiClock, is an example of how a personal challenge was turned into an internationally awarded and patented invention. It has won the biggest science fair in Europe, the European Union's Competition for Young Scientists. The MusiClock mobile app became #1 music app in over 10 countries. MIT Tech Review has honored me among 35 Innovators Under 35 in Europe in 2018. I have written two books: Future Skills and Future Identities. Future Skills will be published in the US in the Fall 2021 by Start Publishing / Viva Editions. I've been called a gentle highbrow and a fearless inventor in Finnish media. I believe human aspects and multidisciplinary thinking will be fundamental in the future, to counterbalance technological advancements.
