I was born in Finland in a small town called Oulu.
I ran, skated and danced my way to the circus. Finnish National Circus came to our backyard every summer and that was an inspiration to me. I found my way into studying circus at the University of Applied Sciences in Turku, and later at the National Centre for Circus Arts in London. I found my discipline - tightwire - through studies and it was love at first sight. It’s a love-hate relationship, finding the perfect balance. After graduating I have worked as a circus performer and a teacher. I also tour with a Finnish cult band Leningrad Cowboys and I am the founder of Lumo Company.
