Joaquim Alves Gaspar is a retired Navy Captain, and a specialist in Navigation, Hydrographic Surveying and Mathematical Cartography, now a researcher at the Centre for the History of Science and Technology, University of Lisbon.
At 27, Joonas has managed to already become one of the most influential instagrammers of his native country, Finland. His account has 112k followers and if you check it out you will see why. His pretty impressive photography is focussed on his main passion: travelling.
Born in the picturesque town of Järvenpää, he is mostly on the road these days but still keeps close ties with his family, still living there in a beautiful, 100 year-old wooden villa. He feels at home there, obviously, but equally so, as he says, when he’s in his sleeping bag!
Joonas graduated from Aalto University as Master of Telecommunications Technology, and now works in marketing, media production and social media.
