Exploring, curiousness and the heart-warming beauty in the people and in the world. Feelings, playfulness, interculturalism. These are something that inspire me in my work. This is my online portfolio, you are very welcome!

about ME


I am a 1990 born Finnish filmmaker graduated from Arts Academy at Turku University of Applied Sciences, Finland in summer 2014.

The people are glittering in the world which is full of deep adventures. Sometimes adventures are surviving. I would like to get even some of the unfairness away with my work.


Making films and films in general are a way to understand people and identify with them,

as well as understanding something that happens in the world. On the other hand I would like to

do filmmaking as a form of participatory art with the subject(s), or anyone willing

to participate, giving a possibility to something meaningful, as art can be healing

and exciting as it is to me.


I love to play and take risks. What is more exciting than a project I really

believe in but that in which I don't know what is going to happen?
Whether it is going to success or not.

Going whole-heartedly forward, find out and m a k e it good.

That is what I love.
