Hello! My name is John Holopainen Hadaway. I am a technologist and writer, interested in the physical and digital spaces that we inhabit and how we coordinate, connect, and make home in them.

I am currently working on ourchive and about to start my civil service. Previously, I worked in urban research and development, design, and strategy, received a degree in history from the University of Chicago, and briefly studied architecture at the Architectural Association School of Architecture.

Before all of that, I was born into a rootless, nomadic childhood, lovingly unsettled in Jakarta, Manila, Cebu City, Moscow, and Almaty. I have since lived in Chicago, London, Montpellier, and Helsinki, where I am currently based.

In my logged off hours, I like to play, write, cook, and rest. If any of the above interests you, I would love to get in touch for any (or no) reason. I am reachable via Twitter, Linkedin, and email. Here is my CV and my portfolio for your prodded snooping. And here is my blog.
