What started as a part time freelancer job for local papers and music blogs has turned into a weird career. Somewhere there, I also heavily got into design, consulting and rock n roll.
I have worked for clients from a wide range of industries and sizes as a creative, marketer, communications specialist, strategist, planner, writer, and designer. My portfolio contains major domestic (Finland) and international projects and I have received industry awards for my deeds and misdeeds.
Some of my old and current client brands include Mutti, Halti, Snellman, EasyFit, Weekendbee, Skand, Kansallinen Kokoomus, Visit Åland, Forenom, Lasinen lapsuus, Kela, Jim-channel and Mercedes-Benz.
In addition to my other duties, I also occasionally direct small to medium video projects for clients.
Currently, I’m getting an MBA in Marketing and Communication Management.
