*In addition to the skills mentioned above, I have also been scriptwriting for a long time, and have six years of programming experience with Unity (two with Angular). These skills are useful, for example, in various cross-artistic projects, such as commissioned applications, creating game experiences or installations.

Film and game music with more than 16 years of expertise

I graduated in 2008 as a composer from Birmingham City University, England, and then a master’s degree in film composition from the Royal College of Musics in Stockholm in 2010. I enjoy creating and combining different music genres. I especially appreciate projects that tell fascinating stories in unexpected settings. This explains why one of my favorite TV series of all time is Twin Peaks.

In addition to film and game music, I have composed theater and circus performances and three musicals.

Short films, video production and animation series

We co-wrote a series of videos with a client. The videos highlighted dialogue skills shortcomings in workplaces through humorous situations. In addition to video production, we also do event streaming with my colleague Viivi Myllylä.

During my school days, I also got very excited about 2D animation. There was something magical about it. I’ve made and implemented animations on top of the video, e.g. Instrumentarium’s Someoptikko campaign and animated an entire animated series pilot. I am currently writing and planning a new animated children’s series.

Passion for writing musicals

I was studying to become a jazz pianist in Jyväskylä in 2005. My friend who played in the symphony orchestra of the University of Jyväskylä mentioned that the orchestra was looking for a commissioned composer for a new musical. I had never composed orchestral music before. However, I applied and was selected based on the demo I wrote. I composed the musical Ruusun Varjo to the text of Antti Viitamäki. I learned orchestral arrangement and, inspired by musical work, I switched to composition studies.

During my film music studies I became interested in writing stories and started writing. In 2015, I wrote my first stage play for a musical called Lemmikki.
