In 1996, after working as a TV scriptwriter and a lecturer for a few years, I was offered a Copywriter post in the most prestigious ad agency of that time in Finland. I knew absolutely nothing about copywriting, or the ad business for that matter, but just out of curiosity I decided to give it a try. That whacky experiment has lasted to this day, and I have enjoyed every minute of the ride.
First years I worked as a Copywriter, then as a Creative Director and a Partner. After 15 years in the biggest and the most awarded agencies I decided to start out on my own. As a one-man agency I can work more closely with inspiring clients, and as a freelancer I can cooperate freely with different agencies and high-end production companies. And that suits me perfectly.
My background is in scriptwriting. I have Master of Arts degree from Aalto University (Film and Television Department) and further studies in Theatre Academy (Special program for Scriptwriting in audiovisual media). In addition to numerous TV commercials, videos, radio ads and branded TV programs, I have written e.g. TV comedy series, short films and radio plays.
Stories are my true passion, and even as a Copywriter I consider myself first and foremost a storyteller. The opportunity to create stories for various media in innovative multimedia campaigns is something I especially enjoy.
I love working with actors and have directed more than 600 radio ads, over 20 TV commercials and almost 50 videos, some short films and radio plays. Several of my ads have been rewarded, and one was a Cannes finalist, so maybe I dare to call myself a writer-director.Enter to see my work
