CREATING EXPERIENCES Through EMOTIONS
I grew up in Helsinki, Finland, in the 80's, and spent most of my childhood glued to the TV fascinated by the worlds and stories told in movies. As a teenager, in my rage against the world, I accidentally saw a documentary film and it struck me to the core. It correlated with my true feelings of the world and blew me away with its authenticity. Since then I've focused on combining drama, style and use of emotions in narrative films with real world stories.
I'm interested in creating cinematic storytelling both for fiction and documentary content. I follow my instincts and I'm lucky to have made award winning documentaries, travel series with record-breaking audience ratings, campaign and branded content from all around the world as a director since 2009. I'm always looking for new projects, stories and scripts waiting to be told. Widely experienced with in-depth interviews, contact and communication, scripting and dramaturgy, international productions, humanitarian topics, adventure/travel content and leading international workshops.
Working experience Finland, Spain, Japan, South Africa, Brazil, Unites States, Russia, China, Indonesia, Mexico, Senegal, Mali, Rwanda, Morocco and the Caribbean Islands. Travelled 53 countries.
