Greetings! My name's Matias.

Creating things is my thing. I've built software professionally for roughly a decade. I've been working at Valuemotive for the majority of that time. Besides tech, I love music. I used to make shoegaze and experimental loop-based music as Butsku — these days I play bass in Paimentolaiselämä. Above all, I am a father to a wonderful baby boy!

I write in-depth articles about tech, travel and other interests of mine. For lighter content, there's the journal.

You can reach me at, or on Twitter.
