In 1997, I was 16 years old and it was the first time I was paid (like actual money) to design and build a website for a company. At the time, I probably got the job because there was three of us in the city I grew up in that could design and build websites so the competition wasn’t that bad.
Fast forward 27 years and here I am, still enjoying designing websites.
But as a wise man said, that’s what I do - it’s not who I am.
So, my name is Anton and I live with my girlfriend Anna, and our dog Taylor (Swift - who's just as energetic and attention-grabbing as her namesake). We live in a beautiful house in the countryside of Southern Sweden.
I’ve been living in Sweden for the last 24 years, but I was raised in Finland where my family still lives. People I work with say they enjoy my Finnish calmness as well as my Nordic work ethic.
Outside of work, I especially enjoy football and have been following Liverpool for nearly all my life. Since moving to our house, I find peace in our garden when the summer turns it into a lovely haven. I enjoy all facets and challenges of gardening.
He presents his work with authority and security, always adding comprehensive reasoning for his design choices.
I sigh in relief when Anton is assigned to a project I'm managing. He has many qualities, the most impressive ones being technical knowledge, a collaborative mindset, attention to detail, and the ability to turn cryptic requests into beautiful final products. Anton is very easy to work with--he's a team player who knows how to give and receive feedback and help the entire team head in the right direction. He presents his work with authority and security, always adding comprehensive reasoning for his design choices.
As a plus, he has that Finnish politeness that adds a special touch to any team.
