MOI! (That's HELLO in Finnish)

I am a Finnish photographer / marketing student living in Los Angeles. I love capturing moments, telling stories and making people smile. Before moving to LA in 2009, I spent few years watching football (the real, European kind) and eating gelato in Milan, Italy. 

10 things I'm currently obsessed with: Smart Cars, Pepsi Max, YouTube, Narwhals (they are real, I just heard!) Wi-Fi on Transatlantic Flights, Andy Cohen, Swedish Chocolate, Instagram Stalking (you can stalk me @moimarke), Polaroids and Peter Pan.
