I am a 28-year-old director and screenwriter based in Helsinki, Finland.

I graduated from Metropolia UAS with a bachelor's degree in filmmaking in 2021. My self-funded graduation film, Primal Therapy, was selected to over 30 festivals, and it won multiple awards, e.g., at Tampere Film Festival and Cottbus Film Festival. I am currently working on multiple projects in fiction and comedy, most recently a comedy sketch series with LuodoMedia and Yle.


I have an affinity for comedy and absurdity. The former offers a way to address serious topics in an entertaining way, while the latter can create something relatable yet totally unexpected. I believe that laughter has the power to unify diverse audiences, and directing it toward forms of societal dissonance can be very revealing.


When I'm not making films, you can find me doing photography or music.

Don't hesitate to reach out if you'd like to work together!
