He has written three travel books (Siberia, S:t Petersburg and Charter Trips) and since 2005 he hosts the talk show Eftersnack every Friday on Finnish Yle.

Katarina takes care of our ongoing matters like administration and accounting. She has a background as an interior designer and sees to that the office feels nice and peaceful – she’ll be especially glad if there’s some humour in the design as well. Luckily enough that’s easily done with our product range!
If Katarina has some spare time it’s yoga calling, and when she gets home she hits the sofa with an exciting book or a good movie.

I was born in Afghanistan, but because of the civil war my family moved to Iraq and later to Iran. Here we lived for twenty years. After I finished my university studies I decided to go back to Afghanistan. The US had by then, 2004, overtaken the country and the Taliban regime collapsed. I started to work with International organizations like World vision and USAID and at the same time I established my own company to export Saffron and dried fruit. The Taliban were once again stronger and while I was working with the organizations I had to leave Afghanistan again in 2015, since working with international organizations was not accepted by the Taliban.
After a really hard and complicated journey I found myself in Finland, and so since 2015 I have been living here. I got employed and I have been working at Come to Finland and Come to Sweden with logistics since 2017. I love both the modern and nostalgic images, they have a feeling of both pleasure and sometimes even a slight sadness – if you consider all the things that has happened in the past.
