I run on passion

Tallinn, Estonia

Request to Book
A man with many roles, few dreams and lots of action. After failing big times in "traditional" business I was looking for the "right way" to do the business. Found startup scene and Garage48. I was fully involved for a year at Garage48 and now taking some time for my own things again, which were on hold for a while.

But the greatest startup I am involved with is still my family. And I am happy about no exit there!

I had a life before my invasion to startup world and I am still keeping some strings attached...
