Hey, my name is Teo Ikäläinen. I’m 24 years old and I live in Espoo, Finland. My family is half Swedish Finn, so I speak Swedish too, but I avoid it at all costs in order to not embarrass myself.
I spend wintertime inside making games and/or music, but in the summertime, I like swimming, sunbathing, camping, tennis, and sailing. Anything you can do outside and preferably on the south coast of Finland. I like to obsess over electronic music, most notably Kygo and other tropical house artists, but it changes with the season. I also love coffee and sleeping +8 hours a night.
I have a degree in visual marketing, which I studied for 3 years before heading to the military (mandatory in Finland), where I spent a year, got leadership training, and a corporal rank. Before forming Uuvana in 2019 after completing the military service and during the 3 years of studying visual marketing I worked in a clothing store chain where I did visual marketing stuff and basic customer service, which I quite enjoyed.
While I love my family and friends A LOT, I do enjoy spending my time alone more than being with other people, but the opposite is true when it comes to games. I do not like single-player games, in fact, I find them quite depressing and anxiety-inducing. I like social games where I can see other people running around doing stuff even though I don’t like to really participate in any social activities in the game, so that’s Longvinter.
