Instrument group
II violin

Geographically my path in life has followed the route Vihti-Kaustinen-Kokkola-Helsinki-Espoo.

I joined the orchestra in December 1997.

I like to play music that stirs the emotions. A variety of styles is refreshing, and skilful orchestration is also fascinating.

My thing about Helsinki is its cafés, like Piritta, Carousel and Regatta, as well as its libraries, especially on Rikhardinkatu and in Kallio and Töölö. I am eagerly looking forward to the new Central Library to open next to the Helsinki Music Centre. A view to the sea is always a splendid bonus.
