Laura

More often than not I advocate change and being the catalyst for something new is where I feel the most comfortable at. I am a solo act but very often I get together with people that have diverse skills but share the same mindset: get stuff done, aim for amazingness and enjoy the process.

In the past nine years I have planned and produced many design events, product launches, exhibition openings, PR, communications and social media campaigns, press trips and publications.

I started in 2006 when I went to work for Martyn Evans at ORIGIN Communications in London. After nine years abroad I moved back to Helsinki in 2009. I continued working in PR at Marsaana Communications, where my clients were mainly large international lifestyle, fashion and luxury brands.

In 2011 I set up my own company and here I am.

Documenting the world around me is no doubt my favorite thing to do. I enjoy playing with words and love looking through a lens. Click here to see some of my photos.

My stories have been featured in several lifestyle titles, websites and in this book about Finnish design published by Gestalten last year. I regularly contribute to the Blue Wings magazine and usually shoot the pieces myself. I have written and edited the Finnair Plus Guide three times now—maybe you’ve seen it.

I also edit a website called Creating Helsinki, which I created to tell the stories of the everyday makers and doers in my city.
