Winners never give up, and those who give up never win.

Instrument group
Section principal

I am from Heinola.

I joined the orchestra in 1996 and have been a principal since 2003.

My most important mentor was Timo Ronkainen.

I like to perform Sibelius and great romantic pieces.

My favourite place in Helsinki is the Kivinokka Café.
