Who am I?
A Finnish Master of Theology, former English major, a video gamer and a huge geek in general.
I graduated from the University of Helsinki in 2019, having majored in New Testament studies with a specific focus on cognitive science of religion and ritual studies.
I've always loved coming up with ideas and telling stories, playing with the wildest dreams and running away with them.
As a recent graduate, I am looking forward to my journey as an author while seeking various other opportunities. So far on my journey, I have been published by a few select indie publishers such as Irrational Comics & YEET Presents, and had some short stories made for various online communities. I also currently have some exciting stories in production for various anthologies, including "The Great Command Meant".
In addition to writing comics, I have began dabbling in lettering and editing. I am currently working as a freelance letterer for independent comics. I am also one of the editors for an upcoming comics anthology:

This one page comic was made in collaboration with the immensely talented Jacob Fleming for a community contest. Law of the Land will be printed in the anthology comic magazine "YEET Presents" issue 35, coming in 2020.
I am very proud of this one, which began with the simple idea of children playing make-believe.
Our entry was very well received, as we managed to win the overall contest.
The contest was judged in various categories.
Our comic came in 1st in Art, Coloring, & Lettering, 2nd in Writing & Composition, and 4th in Originality.

arcane Inkdustries will present a great themed anthology "The Great Command Meant" in 2020, that focuses on the power and meaning of different commands interpreted through comics.
I have the great pleasure to take part in this book with a 6-page story titled "Help", in collaboration with the amazing artist Kyle Irvine. Help is a period piece about a British Lord and the bond he shares with his faithful butler.
Crowdfunding links and further previews of the comic will be posted here, so keep an eye out!
Finalist in the Crime Pays -Anthology contest.
Published in 2020.
Art by Matt Battaglia
The Crossing is an experimental black & white 3-page comic by myself and Matt Battaglia that was created for the Crime Pays -anthology contest by Altruist Comics. Done in its entirety during September of 2020, this is a silent comic that pushes the reader to find meaning through the setting, mood, and character interaction.
Matt managed to convey a lot of the needed subtext with his use of blacks and halftones, to create this incredibly moody comic.
While we didn't place in the top three of the contest, we are very proud to be in great company.
The anthology will be running a Kickstarter -campaign for a print edition soon.
