About me:

I am a native Finnish speaker, trained mainly in the UK and the US. I specialise in the Meisner technique, which I also teach in Finland.

Before falling in love with acting, I worked in many other fields, including as an Professional equestrian, specialising in dressage.

In addition to Finland, I have lived in Germany, Ireland, the UK and India.

I have a Master of Arts degree in Film Screenwriting from the University of Salford.
