About me

I am Estonian and Finno-Ugrian, who likes the idea of free knowledge. I have a higher education in (computational) linguistics, so if you are searching for a topic to discuss with me: let's talk about languages. My hobbies are reading, furniture flipping, and handicrafts.

My work

My first encounter with Wikipedia was in my first year of university (2013) when I had to write an article about a language for Estonian Wikipedia to get my grade. Several years later (2016) I joined the local chapter and since then I have had several roles in the Estonian chapter: assistant, project manager, board member and currently serving as an ordinary member and volunteer.
