Outdoor life is my profession and passion. Growing up in a farm gave me a strong appreciation towards nature and active living.

My outdoor passion started with skiing which took me from the fells in Northern Finland to the mountains, first in the Alps and then in North-America. Nowadays my favorite skiing terrain is in Northern Scandinavia.

My outdoor career started with ski instructing which expanded over the years and I became a certified ski guide and avalanche professional.

My teaching career started with 30 day treks in Wyoming. Those years with an outdoor school gave me a strong base to become a lecturer in adventure education at a university.

Presently, I share my time between guiding, avalanche work and teaching.

This all has been a lifestyle choice. And I’m so happy I have had the courage to follow my heart.
