Short resume

I'm a social media pro. I have a Bachelor's degree in information systems science, and 99% ready Master's degree. The topic of my Bachelor's final paper was non-verbal communication in text-based Internet chatrooms, and for my Master's thesis it is the use of many identities in online communities. My minors have included courses on economics and online communication. Project management was one big focus as well. I've also studied digital design, and currently I'm doing a course on community management.

For the past year I worked at IBM Finland doing online communications. Just before that, I edited a comic book. For a year I worked as a Social Media Manager for a small company making mobile apps. I have also done random project work, mainly with webpages as a content producer and a coder. Volunteering in several disability organisations has also been a good experience.

I have employed personal assistants since 2000, and since 2001 there has been always at least 5 people working for me at a time. I do everything from the hiring process to training and general bossing around.

I'm usually friendly and calm. I get along with nearly everybody, even the first impression might not be the most social.

I have used many social media services both in private and business use, from content management to administrative tasks. Most experience I have on: TweetDeck, HootSuite, Skype, IRC, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, php-based discussion groups, e-mail lists and various blog-platforms. I also know how to use Photoshop and similar programs, how to develop websites (basics of Adobe Dreamweaver, and Joomla and other content management systems), and the basics of publishing with Adobe InDesign and Illustrator.
