I am PhD (Musicology) and M.Sc. (Computer Software Engineering). I have more than 25 years of experience in the field of cultural heritage, as I started as a director of the Music Archive Finland in 1997. I am also Associate Professor at the University of Helsinki. I work part-time for the Time Machine Organization as a RFC Editor, and I act as Time Machine Ambassador in Finland.
I have held numerous trust positions in the field of cultural heritage during the years, the topics ranging from legal and administrative matters to technical details such as digitization and architecture descriptions.
Currently I am the chair of the advisory board of Finnish private archives, and I also chair the Finnish Archives Network. I am e.g. a member of the steering group of the Finna.fi-service and the GLAM legal group in Finland, and I am the secretary of the Finnish Archivist Society. I am also the Editor in Chief of the “Faili” magazine, the only professional journal of archiving in Finland.
