Dear friend! Welcome to my website!
I am a freelance editor, translator and author living in the Helsinki metropolitan area.
I write articles primarily for Finnish magazines and corporate communications on culture, the economy and society.
In addition, I also translate German literature into Finnish. I have lived for several years in various locations around Germany and I have a Master’s degree with German as my major subject. I have translated novels by authors including Jenny Erpenbeck, Stefan Moster and Alain Claude Sulzer.
My first novel, Hylky (The Wreck) was published by the Avain publishing house in 2011. The Wreck is a story about three people who live in different worlds and are brought together by a wrecked ship lying at the murky sea bottom.
My Finnish web pages contain representative examples of my articles as well as information on my translations and my own prose. I also write about subjects that I have found through my work and that have aroused my interest.
I am curious by nature and I think that curiosity is a prerequisite for writing well. If you would like to hear more please get in touch.
