I am an actor, teacher, and a researcher. I view these three different activities as interconnected and mutually inspiring. As an authorial actor, I have created and presented performance work for over 25 years. My latest project, The Hucky Honolulu Sessions, a performance series for YouTube, is currently in beta-version at www.huckyhonolulu.com. I also co-create by performing in the work of other artists, most recently in the work of multi-media artist Anna Estarriola. My teaching work mostly consists of leading (Inter)acting with the Inner Partner (aka IwIP), a solo improvisational discipline. I teach IwIP and Performative Well-Being courses at the University of Arts Helsinki and private workshops as part of the activities of a Helsinki non-for-profit, Culture Current, which is a member organisation of Globe Art Point. I am the Chairperson of Culture Current. I joined G.A.P’s board in 2019.
