I am working as an independent artist at various forms of art, such as performance art, movement-based theatre and video art.



I am currently working as the research director of ”Art-Eco Project (2015-2017) – towards empathetic-ecological humanity” funded by Kone Foundation.



I am teaching my own artistic and pedagogical methods as a visiting lecturer in the fields of arts and education.

I completed my PhD (art-based research) in 2012 at the University of Tampere (School of Education). I also hold a graduate diploma in dance animateuring from the University of Melbourne (School of Dance, VCA) and MA in visual culture from Aalto University (School of Art and Design).
