I am Director responsible for various client projects. I bring expertise from the civil service to our team. Prior to joining Blic, I had a long career with the Finnish Ministry of Defence where I held various defence and security policy related positions. I have also worked as Defence Counsellor at the Embassy of Finland in Washington, DC, and as an exchange officer at the UK Ministry of Defence. I have also worked for the Crisis Management Initiative (CMI), a Helsinki based NGO. I hold a Master of Arts degree in International Affairs from the The George Washington University in Washington, DC.
