I am a designer equipped with a contemporary skill set combining practice and theory. I always strive for strategic thinking first when working with brands and products. Understanding the end users, cultural codes, and visual culture comes first, crafting the solution second.

I hold a Master's degree in International Design Business Management from Aalto University in Helsinki and a BA in Packaging and Brand design from The Lahti Institute of Design. These two fields of study have resulted in an appreciation and passion for both Strategic Design as well as the craft of design. Topics regarding visual culture, meaning Innovation and brand design make my creative juices flow. I work mostly in the realms of Visual Design and Packaging Design.
