Hallo! My name is Mikael Korpela (or nick ''simison''). 5th ape and a little tryhard wannabe vagabond. Usually thinking very positive. I'm also a graphic designer and web-developer. I'm one of the admins/actives behind this Wiki, I wrote most of the [[:fi:|finnish edition]] and did also [[:Hitchwiki:Maps|Maps]].

I'm sometimes very active with my slightly activist-type of hobbies, but I do enjoy being lazy. People say that I'm a rather easygoing fella.
