I was born in Helsinki, Finland. When I was two my family moved to Tanzania in East Africa, and I spent a lot of my childhood there. I now live in the UK with my musician husband,two children and a precious cat. My Finnish culture is important to me, as are my Tanzanian roots, so my kids have learnt to be very tolerate of my multi culturalism and are happy to travel with me every summer to Finland, and also to other places as much as we can, the latest being back to Tanzania in Feb 05. I have also lived in Switzerland, the States and Norway, with no particular favourite - they've all been great adventures.
