Niko HeikkiläOi there, mate!

I’m a pre-middle-aged (or on my late 20s) bloke working as a software engineer and games critic which are only few — albeit important — parts of my persona.

Currently I’m working through the post-grad phase in the university where I study digital games research and development. Additionally, I’m supporting local game development and game education scene by doing volunteer work and organising events for adults and youth alike.

Apart from that I write, a lot. Words are my sharpest weapon and the sentences that form out of them appear in my pop-culture blog and the games magazine where I work as an editor-in-chief. You might notice that I’m into video games. Well, that is true, indeed, but I wish I had more time on my schedule to actually play and analyze them.

Since I’m an active and enthusiastic tweeter, ask me anything on Twitter if it’s a prompt response you need. Resume for professionally oriented minds is on LinkedIn.

I try to avoid defining myself further, as people usually are very different from what they believe they are. Moreover, I find this quote by an eccentric mystic G.I. Gurdjieff very precise when defining oneself.

It is the greatest mistake to think that man is always one and the same. A man is never the same for long. He is continually changing. He seldom remains the same even for half an hour.

Spotify recommendations portray my music taste quite accurately. Listen to them below or head over to my Last.fm page.
