He spent his early years by creating games and "user interfaces" with ‘Klik n Play’, geocities and HTML editors, producing music with Casio SK-1, cassette tapes and ‘Hip Hop eJay’, creating stop-motion animation with legos and a cheap webcams. By learning and experimenting without internet using the power of Windows 95, multimedia spectacles were created and then forgotten.

Bunch of time was spent by watching Star Trek, having LAN parties, producing music and learning Linux, Vim and LAMP servers.
Three years of backend work made Olli to leap towards his natural interests, leading him into the world of UX. Nowadays he is passionate about creating accessible and pleasant user experiences for all ages. He is especially fascinated by decluttering, privacy, open-source software and all that jazz..
Currently Olli is working at Aiwo Digital as an UI Developer.
