I am a professional photographer and a wilderness guide from Finland. In the past I’ve studied photojournalism, wilderness guiding and I have a Bachelor’s degree in Traveling Management.

My life is mostly outdoors and I'm working closely with the nature. I would say I'm in my dream job as an entrepreneur. I've had my own company nearly 10 years and I can't imagine life without it.. 

I've lived in USA and Mexico and visited over 60 countries so far. That is why I have dedicated 2017-2018 to traveling in Finland and finding beauty nearby. 

For me happiness is all about freedom. It’s also about waking up in places where you start smiling as soon as you open your eyes. That's where I would love to take you too - either via my pictures or in real life.

At the moment I also do writing and campaigns that encourage people to spend more time outdoors . I have done guiding projects for Visit Finland and articles for outdoor magazines such as Latu & Polku. My photos has been seen for example at Rio Olympics in Finland House and Hossa National Park nature center.
