I am currently working as Head of marketing and PR at Showplans, a specialist design company for the events industry that produces floorplans, 3D imaging, interactive planners and event apps.

I previously worked as a Lecturer of Business and Mentor of Project Studies at Laurea University of Applied Sciences, and prior to that as a Lecturer of Music Industry Management and International Business at JAMK University of Applied Sciences in Jyväskylä (Jyväskylän Ammattikorkeakoulu) between August 2006 and July 2011,

I am educated in Music Industry Management and fully qualified as a Business Studies teacher. I also completed my Master's degree in Music, Mind and Technology at Jyväskylä University (Jyväskylän Yliopisto) while working, in June 2009.

Specialities: My main area of interest in my career, both from a practical and a teaching perspective, is marketing, to which I have a dynamic and modern approach. However, I am also able to teach in a diverse range of fields within business and arts management, including intellectual property and contract law, music/entertainment industry framework, management and leadership, and other business subjects. I have a British Council-approved TEFL qualification.
