I'm a Filmmaker with work experience in Finland, London and Australia. I've been working over 12 years in various marketing and advertising agencies and studied Film production at SAE Creative Media Institute in Melbourne. I'm one of the Co-Founders and Partner at Taival Films, a film production company based in Melbourne.


My dad introduced TV behind the scenes to me early on as he was a set builder in a television company in Finland where I grew up with TV shows and cartoons of the 80's. During my career in marketing and advertising, I've seen the advertising agency side of filmmaking and have a in depth understanding of commercial filmmaking. My skills widened during work placement through SAE, as I did my internship hours with iconic "Neighbours" TV-show and with ABC Studios.


My roles in film-projects have usually been as a Producer or as a 1st Assistant Director. I'm passionate storyteller and enjoy working as a Writer, when a production allows for it.


My passion is to work in film & television industry and combine my previous work experience and strengths of project management into my passion for entertaining audience with the work created on set.

I am always keen to hear about new upcoming projects and am interested in collaborating in short films, commercial work, feature films etc. Drop me a line and we can discuss more.
