Me

Tsui-Shan Tu. Born in Taipei, graduated in Denmark, living in Finland since 2003.

Since I moved to Finland my career has been developing in two parallel directions at the same time. I have had numerous full-time working experience in cultural and education institutes as planning officer and project manager, in which Finnish has been the working language. On the other hand, I continue my freelance writing career in cooperation with Taiwanese magazines, websites and different media.

Through my books, magazine/website columns and blogs, I have been introducing and promoting Finnish life style and design for over 10 years. If you have any proposals on co-operation, welcome to contact me: tsuishan.tu(a)gmail.com

HONOURS:

Below is the book promoting video made for my awarded book “Pure Finland”, produced by Chinatimes OpenBook Award and Leading Creatives production company. In this video I talked about my observation on Finnish design and my motivation of writing this book.

Video language is Chinese.

我是凃翠珊,筆名北歐四季 十多年前,我因緣際會踏上北歐的土地,從芬蘭到丹麥,再從丹麥到芬蘭,不知不覺的在自己的生活中旅行,從一個城市搬到另一個城市,於是我住過四個國家、八個城市、十九個住所,搬過二十二次家,沒有冠冕堂皇的理由,只是喜歡體驗生活。

這幾年來很多人都問我,居住在北歐好不好,坦白說,從留學生、到移民、再到定居當地融入社會成為工作者,每個階段我的體悟都不同,對於這個問題,我永遠不會有絕對的答案,只是提醒自己,無論在哪裡,重要的是在每日當下的生活裡,細細咀嚼人生

我喜歡創作,喜歡實驗網路,喜歡從我的北歐生活中觀察記錄體驗點點滴滴,於是,就有了這個北歐四季透明筆記

透明筆記裡什麼都有,推薦新朋友,先閱讀芬蘭的創意與設計,逛逛城市發展與創新系列,體驗芬蘭的自然四季,或是參考好玩的芬蘭社會的大小新鮮事
