BIOGRAPHY:

When the opportunity to make a difference arose, Kalle seized the moment, as though he had been preparing for that challenge his whole life. The advice he gives young people today draws on his own experiences and the quests he has been on. Kalle looks back on his life with the satisfaction of knowing he's done what he felt he had to do. Driven by forces beyond his control, as he tells the story, he claims he never had doubts about the decisions he made. Still passionate about the causes he believes in, he acknowledges that he places more emphasis now on the personal dimension than he once did and that during the last few years of his life he has measured success in terms of how happy he is and how fulfilled he feels.
