With trembling knees, I preached my first sermon about the woman with an issue of blood who was healed by touching the cloak of Jesus. I could not even imagine that preaching and teaching would be my calling. Yet, since that day, I have taught in many different churches, done radio programmes on Pereraadio and Radio 7, TV programmes on Life TV and Heaven TV 7, lectured in public schools and conducted various training courses in the secular world.

In my early teens, my chemistry teacher announced in fury that I would end up either in prison or be hanged. Now I can joke that he was 'nearly a prophet', as from 1997 I started volunteering in the Estonian prison system and since spring 2009 I do indeed spend most of my waking hours 'behind the bars', but not in the way the teacher predicted. I have privilege to serve as a chaplain in Tallinn Prison, the biggest one in Estonia.

I have been married since 2000 and we have one child. I have had a long interest in sports, reading books and hiking.
