I’m a journalist based in Finland. I write about film, tv, pop music, culture and politics. 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.

Currently I am working on two nonfiction books:

The Cannabis Book will be published in Finnish by Kosmos Publishing in 2018.

Antti Tapani, the biography of the Finnish pop star Antti Tuisku, will be published by WSOY in 2018.

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.
