Free time activities
I play the violin and have been/am a member of Oxford University Orchestra, Helsinki University Symphony Orchestra, Renmin University's Baroque Orchestra and the Helsinki Strings. I enjoy various kinds of sports such as marathon running, hiking, karate, rowing, diving and fitness sports. The sports I do tend to change a bit according to where I am. I did Shaolin gongfu in Beijing and rowing in Oxford, but running is what stays. I've run ten Helsinki City Marathons and two Espoo Beach Marathons so far and would like to participate in the Great Wall Marathon one day.

Since autumn 2015 I have been instructing the beginner's course in karate at the University of Helsinki's karate club Honbu. I aim to complete my first full ironman competition in triathlon in August 2017 and have thus far completed two half ironman competitions in 2015 and 2016. I train triathlon with TriathlonSuomi.
