My background is in architecture and design. I’ve worked with buildings, musical instruments, artistic installations and sound. I´ve also been coaching entrepreneurs to find focus, build stronger teams and reach simplicity in their daily processes.
Currently I work in Aalto Ventures Program teaching entrepreneurial thinking and design skills. I also develop novel ways to integrate entrepreneurial thinking into the studies.
My main mission is to encourage students to follow their curiosity, and most importantly, take the first step. The process includes locating the source of motivation, understanding the personal skill palette and finding traction. It all aims to help students build the self-confidence, strength and mindset needed to take the initiative and to maintain proactive attitude, even under pressure. Therefore I believe the high-performance approach needs a balancing force. In addition to operating outside their comfort zone, students need to reserve time for recovery, socialising, exploration and love.
