I'm an amateur indie game developer. More writer than anything. Maybe one day I'll actually learn to program. For now I'm working in Twine and may expand to try other text-based formats. Games hold a special place for me but I do think they can do better, especially when it comes to telling stories. And it's something I want to work on. Whether I achieve that is another matter. All of my games are available on itch.io and/or on the Interactive Fiction Database.
I'm a novice programmer attempting to learn to be a full-stack developer. To get an idea of what I'm doing just check out my projects over at CodePen. Right now they're nothing special but I do have a number of ideas for apps, websites and other projects. Regardless, knowing how to code will help me in my work in humanitarian aid and development, as well as a journalist and communications professional. Plus, it's always fun to learn something new.
The Duck Pond is a podcast about the realities of integrating in Finland’s other official language – Swedish. Integration, regardless of language, is not a simple matter. In Finland, they want it to be a matter of language and work. Get one then get the other. But there are many more dimensions to it. It’s a matter of politics, health, culture, power, acceptance and identity. All of that and more is explored through interviews with the people involved in the integration process from students to teachers to politicians. The Duck Pond is published by Kommunförbundet at Kommuntorget.fi.
