I am born and raised in Helsinki, Finland. Sports, music and arts has always been a part of my life, from playing the viola to diving and thai boxing. To name a few. Of course, swimming has always been a part of my life.

My passion for swimming got more serious when I started working as a swimming teacher in Mäkelänrinteen Uintikeskus. In that time triathlon was getting popular and that meant that more people wanted to know freestyle. Soon I noticed that I was working most of the time with triathletes.

To be able to swim fast requires deep understanding what you do and how your body feels in the water. My ultimate goal is to simplify freestyle technique so that everybody could swim effortlessly and fast. I think I’m pretty near finding a solution.   

My strengths are swimming technique and teaching. I get super excited every day, when I get to work with my swimmers and make them better swimmers.

My philosophy in life is to have fun and make the best of everything.
