Curriculum vitae


During the years 1988 to 1993 I studied medicine at the University of Helsinki and after that I have worked as a licensed doctor. I started sculpture studies 2001 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki and I graduated as Master of Fine Arts (MFA) 2008. At the moment I am interested in combining visual arts to the field of digital technologies in order to elaborate a new artistic language generated by 3d computer software and parametric modeling.
