My focus is on the user-centred and collaborative workplace and learning environment development, concept making and interior architecture. At the same time, I´m learning more about strategic and service design as well as new ways to co-create with the users and other stakeholders in the Aalto Univesity.
Furthermore, I believe that change always creates design opportunities that we should not miss. I feel passionately towards strategic co-design and transformation design and finding out the right problem for each challenge with the right methods and tools, of course, together with different stakeholders.
I have decided to dedicate my time to sensemaking in order to support change making. To do this, I do design consulting in Helsinki. More and more, also abroad. My office is at my home and at the Aalto University campus. During my time in Aalto, I am focusing on two things: 1) How to implement the agile, design way of thinking into the culture of organizations in order to make better decisions faster and based on the real needs and desires of the end-users? 2) How to combine strategic and service design thinking into architecture in order to make more future-ready and human-centred buildings?
I am among the enthusiastic and talented students every day, which makes me certain that we have all the tools in our hands – we just need to find the right people to collaborate with and make positive change happen.

I have written and illustrated a book together with a principle and researcher Marko Kuuskorpi. The guide explains our approach to the learning environment development with emphasis on the early development of pedagogical visioning. The focus is on the cultural change together with the physical space development.
The book is published by the Finnish National Agency of Education. It is only in Finnish at the moment, we are looking for a publisher to make it in English.
