My biggest aspiration is to build a better tomorrow by leveraging progressive tech and merging brainpower with kick-ass teams.

I love blending contextual, societal, and cultural elements into the design work I do. At the moment, I’m experimenting with the aspects of sustainability & behavioural design in my daily practices.

Off work, I’m a bad-ass lady biker, happy dog owner, and outdoors lover. And oh don’t get me started on the sourdough baking!

I’m located in Espoo, Finland but work globally.
