Can you tell us a bit about yourself?


I’m Finnish freeskier part of Keeshlife crew, born in arctic circle at city called Rovaniemi



When did you start skiing and why did you choose freestyle ?


I started snowboarding around when I was 10 or something. After one or two seasons I changed to skiing when all my friends were skiing and it looked so fun that I started skiing too.



What is the best memory of your career?


Hard to say a single moment but it’s either 2012 Salomon Jib Academy trip to mammoth or 2016 spring with all the Keeshlife homies doing bunch of trips.



Apart from skiing, what are your passions?


Right now skating, my dog and videogames.





If you were not a skier, what would you be? And why?


Most likely I would try to pursuit a career in e-sports hahah. That has been part of my life almost as long as skiing.



What is the strongest lesson that skiing has taught you?


To enjoy every moment and also that hard work pays off at some point.



What is your favourite movement (tricks)?


Any chill 540 always feels amazing



What’s your plan for the coming season ?


Film as much as possible and hopefully attend some type of fun gathering/contest (like BULDOZ INVITATIONAL)



What are you most excited about joining the Movement tribe and what does it mean to you?


I’m most excited about the skis and I can’t wait for the slopes to open already... Being part of the tribe is just amazing and I’m beyond happy to work with a company who actually gives back to skiing community.
