I found my way to the sphere of CI in early 2000. I was deeply intrigued by the form from the first touch. In the last 15 years i have studied with many teachers, attended countless festivals, and studied contemporary dance in Germany. Due to my background in psychology I have always being interested in the influence of CI and somatics on human developmental processes. This is an ongoing personal research and is also reflected in my teaching of CI. In addition to this, CI is for me an exceptionally novel and nourishing form of communication and creative expression.

Since 2008 I have taught CI for various lenghts in local communities in Turku and Freiburg and in international festivals in Finland, Poland, and Sweden. I'm also one of the organisers of the Skiing on Skin festival in Finland.
