I am a Finnish information systems, management, and game studies scholar who also dabbles in service research, sexology and the cognitive study of religion. I hold a master’s degree in theology, a doctorate in information studies and interactive media, and a MBA in service innovation and design.
I primarily work as a Development Manager of educational services for the city of Vantaa, Finland. Secondarily, I am a part-time Assistant Professor of Management and Organization at Hanken School of Economics, and hold the rank of Adjunct Professor (Docent) of Contemporary Culture Science (particularly games and social information networks) at the University of Jyväskylä.
As other sidelines, I design organizational training and learning games and I co-edit the Sage journal Simulation & Gaming, and Seksologinen Aikakauskirja, the annual journal of the Finnish Association for Sexology. I am a former executive editor of the International Journal of Role-Playing, a multi-diciplinary academic journal about role-playing in its various forms.
