Helsinki, Finland.

I'm a small town girl who has discovered that she actually likes her cities big,

a writer who has just recently found the love for performing again,

a daydreamer who as a child believed that everybody else knows how to read each others' mind - and is still sometimes disappointed that this isn't the case.

WHAT I DO

I've worked for Finnish National Broadcasting Company Yle, ITV Studios Nordic, Metronome Film & Television, Aito Media and Aalto University, just to mention a few.

I've written and directed TV-shows, short fictional and documentary films, commercials and audio plays. I've worked as a copywriter, a blog writer and a dramaturg. Currently I'm working on my first feature film script and I'm an active member of the Finnish Guild for Screenwriters.

Additionally, I've co-created and collaborated in miscellaneous art projects, an example of which can be seen here.

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

I'm currently completing my Master's in Screenwriting at Aalto University/ ELO Film School Helsinki, where I've also taken classes in fiction and documentary directing. I have background in Journalism, Marketing and Intercultural Communication after studying in Universities of Vaasa and Copenhagen. In recent years I've completed several international filmmaking workshops such as ENGAGE and Four Corners, both training initiatives supported by EU MEDIA Programme.
