I like to think teaching as a method of creating dialogues that involve exchanging actions, ideas, abilities, memories, knowledge and feelings between two or more people.

I’ve worked and taught at all the levels of the educational system in Finland.
I’ve also organised various workshops at the Free Education section with a variety of Institutions and organisations.
My employers have included Finnish National Gallery,  Aalto University and City of Helsinki amongst many others.
