I am a designer living in Helsinki, Finland. Currently, I am working as a Service Designer at Kaufmann Agency. I finished my studies in Aalto University´s IDBM Master´s Program (International Design Business Management) in 2015. Before entering university, I did my Bachelor´s Degree in Packaging and Graphic Design in Lahti Institute of Design.


My studies in Aalto University has widened my scope of knowledge to cover not only design but also technology and business. The strongest asset I have is empathy: understanding everyday issues from the user´s perspective. But one can not learn only through theory and reading books. Therefore, I have developed a strong set of skills by working in different design and advertising agencies, startups and research teams.

At the moment, my interest lays in the challenges that the health care industry and
elderly population confronts, but I am open to different kinds of projects.

I look forward to the opportunity to get new contacts and interesting briefs.
