PROFESSIONAL HOST - MUSICIAN - DANCING
Hosting is something I've done on a professional level since becoming Activities Manager for Royal Caribbean. Hosting itself I've done throughout my entertainment career since 2005.
As a host I use plenty of personality, lingual knowledge and situational comedy to make the events lively and comfortable. The job of a Cruise Director and Program Manager is to be the host and the master of ceremony for a number of various events, cocktail parties, game-shows, onboard TV and generic show presenting onboard on a daily basis
I've played guitar and sang since I was 15. In the early years I never had the goal of becoming a performing musician, but regardless I've ended up performing for the best part of the last 10 years in various environments. Even though I'm still not the professional in what I do that I'd like to be, I continue to push the limits in the field of music to see where it might lead.
My guitarist singer style is very much acoustic pop cover based with styles of artists like Boyce Avenue, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz and John Mayer. The other performing music style I enjoy is 50's & 60's style Rock n' Roll, with which I've created a show concert called "Topi & The Top Dogs" generally performed onboard with various different onboard groups.

Dancing not a 'Dancer'. In my profession working with so many professional dancers I can't find to call myself a dancer due to never been trained to be one. However dancing with various styles has been a hobby of mine for a long time. In my work I normally concentrate in the show dancing and learning simplier choreographs.

I have always been interested in various styles of performance, many being physical performing like acrobatis and fire performance. Throughout my entertainment career I have tried multiple different stage performance styles and variations from mime, tumbling, stilt walking into drama and acting. Theater studies in Lahti Folkschool brought me some insight to the drama and understanding how to combine different styles of performing into one whole.
