I graduated as a dancer & choreographer (BA, Hons) from Falmouth University, UK in 2018. I work as a freelance dance artist in Finland, mainly in Pirkanmaa. I work with film, community dance and live performance. Currently I am doing my Master's in Choreography in Fontys/Codarts in the Netherlands.
As a creator I gravitate towards feminist subjects. My choreographic process is mostly based on creating material with improvisational practices. I am passionate in researching the use of film and dance together in different ways. I believe in creating a safe working environment, collaboration and open communication.
I am currently expanding into community dance. I work for Pirkanmaa Dance Center. I hold dance for Parkinson's classes and work especially with the elderly.
