I grew up and began my career in Finland, "the home of the mobile phone and a design industry based purely around function", as Monocle Magazine calls it.
I earned my experience as art director, concept designer and creative director in Scandinavia, praised for its award-hoarding digital agencies, then went on to work in the Middle East, the United States, and Canada. In New York, I worked as an Interaction Design Director at R/GA leading a large team of interaction designers. I'm now based in Toronto, Canada.
My work has been awarded nationally and internationally. I also participate in and speak at events and design community events, including Slush 2012 in Helsinki, Finland, the UXLx conference in Lisbon, Portugal in 2010, and IxDA events in Toronto, Canada.
