Visionary storyteller, whose stories often throw a surprising left hook.

Raised up in Malmi - a notorious neighborhood in northern Finland (situated approximately 15 km from Helsinki city center), Tuukka has risen from a teleprompter operator to an advertising film director. His exquisite rhetoric skills, empathetic manners and sense of justice makes him excellent at directing people and also a jolly nice co-worker.

Cinematic storytelling has become polished through making short films. Organ (2011) was selected for the Tampere Film National Competition, DocPoint and Helsinki International Film Festival - Love & Anarchy. In recent years he has concentrated on directing music videos and commercials. He has studied Film Making in the Netherlands and in Helsinki, Finland.

First steps with Also Starring were at a music video shoot in a swimming pool in Lohja - him wearing Speedo’s and goggles. Partnership was formed on a Friday night in January, in an “idyllic” parking lot next to a half-abandoned hamburger joint and a busy street.

With or without the Speedo’s - Tuukka is ready tackle any challenge a director might face.
