My two passions are playing football and making films. Some say that Finland sucks at both. I’ve done my best to change this.  At the age of 38 I’ve pretty much given up hope with football. My sole purpose now is to make awesome films. 

Ever since growing up (in the north Helsinki suburbs) I’ve felt it’s my second nature to tell stories trough images. That’s what got me into filmmaking in the first place. I also love working with actors - discovering new raw talent as well as collaborating with established professionals. 

Since finishing film school (University of Art and Design Helsinki) I’ve directed a whole lot of music videos, a bunch of commercials, few short films, a TV mini-series and one feature film (Korso, 2014).
