I've written things for as long as I know. In high school my majors were writing and speaking (it was a special expressive arts high school). In The University of Helsinki I did my MA on Study of Religions. I studied also Folkloristics, Musicology, Finnish Litterature and Comparative Litterature. I also did a writing course at an academy school in Helsinki (Kriittinen korkeakoulu).
My free time is hugely consumed by The Finnish Pagan Network organization (Pakanaverkko ry) which works for the betterment of religious equality in Finland and promotes (neo)pagan religions. Among other organizational work, I write articles for the organization's quarterly paper, Vox Paganorum.
I've published 4 small factual children's books about Finland, Estonia, Norway and Iceland.
Now I am working on actually finishing a novel and I have plans of applying for PhD-studies.
