He is lecturer at the University of Tallinn, and has written widely on history, politics, art, films and philosophy. Some of this work is collected in Millimallikas (Medusa, 2000) and Paljusus ja ainulisus (Plurality and Singularity, 2009).  He has also been a prolific translator of writers and poets, and founded the internet periodical Ninniku, with Kalju Kruusa in 2001.

More recent work includes the 2004 epic Meeter and Demeeter (Metre and Demeter), based on folklore, which won the Baltic Assembly Prize for Literature in 2005, and the more personal Neli korda neli (Four Times Four, 2009).
