  • Pauli is well-versed in European cinema and keeps a "Mads Mikkelsen list" of actors from Scandinavian dramas and goofy comedies who'll inevitably end up playing Hollywood villains.
  • Due to his incurable habit of scribbling notes and article ideas during screenings, he owns a collection of battered Moleskines that are full of some of the worst handwriting known to man.
  • A lifelong student of pop culture trends, Pauli is well-informed on a number of entertainment industry topics.


Pauli has written thousands of articles for various online outlets since 2011, collaborating with some of the finest word-crafting minds on the internet to surf the pop culture zeitgeist. Apart from his work on Xoop, Grunge, Mashed, The Modern Rogue, TopTenz, and others, he was a regular columnist for comedy juggernaut from 2013 to 2017, covering a wide variety of subjects and crafting pop culture analysis for up to millions of readers every week. You may have read his printed words in the books "The De-Textbook: The Stuff You Didn't Know About the Stuff You Thought You Knew" and "'s Epic Book of Mind-Boggling Lists." Before Pauli discovered the internet, he was a finalist in the 2009 Portti science fiction writing competition with his short story, "After War Came."


Pauli has a BBA from Haaga University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki, specializing in marketing and copywriting.
