Actor, Filmmaker, Marketing expert and everything else in between.

I’m a 29-year-old Finnish actor and filmmaker currently living in Sweden. I’ll tell you why I moved to the cold north but first we need to go back a bit.

Let’s start with the year 2011 when I enrolled into acting school in Finland to pursue my passion in the performing arts. The year I spent studying in the school (Kauniaisten Työväen Akatemia) amplified my already strong passion towards acting in film, TV and theatre and that’s when I decided that this is a career worth pursuing. Before I was even finished with school, I was already doing small roles in the Finnish TV and felt a strong passion to go international.

So I decided to move to London.

Moving to London in early 2013 is probably the best decision I have ever done in my life. I made a ton of new contacts and solidified my career as an actor. I didn’t get to spend much time in London when I was being cast to Universal Studios Japan as an actor and a stuntman. Living in Japan was a wonderful experience that I am sure to cherish for the rest of my life.

After my time in Japan, I went back to London and played the lead role in a feature film Sandow. At the time I was really missing my girlfriend who I met in 2013 while living in London and she had moved to Dubai. So off to Dubai I went being cast for a themepark.

While in Dubai I got an email.

“Congratulations, you’ve been selected for Mälardalen University to study Analytical Finance”. After a moment of confusion, a drunken memory came to mind; while living in London I had indeed applied for university. Well shit.

When life gives you a branch, you should grab it. And grab it I did.

So I moved to Sweden and started studying mathematics. Pretty soon I realised that math isn’t my thing. Thankfully I managed to make a switch to International Business, which seems like a better option.

While living here in Sweden, I have missed my creative life and decided to get back to it while finishing school. I am now a fulltime filmmaker specializing in weddings and commercial shoots while filming my passion projects when the time allows it.

That’s it in short. If you want some more information, shoot me an email =).
