Hobbies

My favourite pastime is, as can be expected, my wife Hanne (we were married on July 7, 2001) and son Ville (web page requires registration) and daughter Venla. We used to have a cat, Bast, who passed away in 2009, but who did inspire this domain’s name through her nickname Badzilla.

Science fiction and fandom activity fill the top of the list of activities I’m interested in. I was the treasurer of the Turku Science Fiction Society in 2004 and a member of the board from 2004 to 2008, and I was the treasurer of Tutka (The Science Fiction Culture Cabinet at the University of Turku) between 1997 and 2007. I also was the secretary of the committee for organizing Finncon 1999 in Turku, and a member of the Finncon 2003 committee.

My other hobbies include computers, music, reading (especially sf & fantasy), and photography. You can also check out my photo gallery. Any photos you see in the badzilla.net domain are by me unless otherwise noted.
