About me

Photo by Antti Hämäläinen

I'm a Finnish sound designer and musician with my feet in music education. I'm specialised in immersive and interactive projects: experiences where audience shares the feeling of presence and becomes a part of the illusion − or reality if that's the aim.

I'm always looking for interesting projects and collaborations, so don't hesitate to contact!
