About Me


I am a 20-something graphic designer and cat lady (without cats) from Salo, now living in Helsinki, Finland.

In 2014 I graduated from University of Tampere with a Bachelor's degree in Comparative Literature.

Currently I am studying Digital Graphic Design at Metropolia University of Applied Sciences and hopefully graduating in late 2018.

I have also been an exchange student twice, both times in Japan; 2012-2013 at Daito Bunka University and 2017-2018 at Joshibi University of Art and Design.

I speak Finnish as my native language, but I am also quite fluent in English and Japanese. I would like to be better at Swedish.

My handwriting is supposedly quite nice.

As a graphic designer I am especially interested in video editing, illustrating, web design and brand design. I also enjoy writing many kinds of texts.

My tools of trade are Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects and Premiere Pro.

During my free time I can be found studying Japanese, creating stories, fermenting vegetables and telling dad jokes.
