About Me


“There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.” some wise words from Jack Kerouac.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love mix of indie, pop, folk, electronic and rap. During spring 2014 I've listened a lot of David Bowie, Blondie and The Shins, but also MØ, Tove Lo and Pharrel Williams. And I'm always on the look for interesting bands and artists. I also enjoy listening to Finnish radio stations Bassoradio and Radio Helsinki.

I enjoy films of Wes Anderson, Woody Allen and Sofia Coppola and also have a bit of a soft spot for cheesy romantic films, which have a overly happy ending. My favorite movie of 2013 was Frances Ha, which made me start planning my second trip to New York!

My absolutely favorite book is J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye. Found it in the tender age of 16 and have read it every spring since! I also like John Irving, Ernest Hemingway and Mario Vargas Llosa to name a few. I used to be a total book nerd and loyal customer of my hometown library, but now I seem to not find time to read as much as I'd like to!
