Hello. I am Markus and I am 42 years old and live in Jakobstad. I have almost 15 years of experience as an layout journalist and I am currently on my path to become a software developer.
I am interested in modern app and web development and I think that my background in both typography, design and markup can provide a benefit in that field.
