Service Description

Whatever I do, I will do with a finnish attitude: It has to be right and on time. Whatever I promise, I will deliver.

I have worked abroad and in multicultural environments and have travelled a lot - I am easy to get along and will go extra mile to meet customer needs.

When it comes to writing - in any forms - I have always loved it and received the highest grades both in grammar as well as in creative writing.
