I am a layman enthusiast of Finno-Ugric language and geopolitics, found this site from Votian Wiki incubator main page and decided to join.
I am Finnish and live in Helsinki, I earn my living doing things with IT.
So far, all my studies in family of fenno-ugric languages and history have been conducted in internet, and these 'research' has lead my here. I haven't studied fenno-ugric languages anywhere, and my russian skill is limited to reading cyrillic alphabet and using http://translate.google.com :) However I am somewhat able to read Karelian, Vepsian, Votian, Estonian and other finnic languages. So, please be gentle.
