about

I’m a journalist based in Finland. I write about film, tv, pop music, culture and feminism. My work has been published in Helsingin Sanomat, Ilta-Sanomat, Image, Ylioppilaslehti, Rumba, Voima, and Episodi.

I have also hosted several shows on Radio Helsinki, including Näköradio (focused on peak tv) and the afternoon show.

I am the author of three nonfiction books:

The Cannabis Book was published in Finnish by Kosmos Publishing in April 2018.

Antti Tapani, the biography of the Finnish pop star Antti Tuisku, was published by WSOY in August 2018. I co-wrote the book with Antti Aro.

Mikael Gabriel – Alasti, the biography of rapper and actor Mikael Gabriel, will be published by WSOY in March 2019. Co-written with Laura Friman.

I was the editor for Jotkut taas väittävät (SKR, 2017), a one-off culture anthology published in print and online, as well as one of the writers on Kelaa sitä (Reuna, 2017), a movie quiz book. I’ve also contributed for the book Mad Music (WSOY, 2016).

There’s also a podcast! It’s called Anton & Joonas, and it’s me and my colleague Joonas Kuisma discussing art, culture and sport. Here’s our episode with rapper/poet Paperi T.

Here you can find some of my recent musings about things such as film, cars, pop music, tv, internet, porn, and myself.
