I was born in 1963 in Tallinn and grew up in Kuusalu. My father was a pastor in the St Lawrence congregation of EELC in Kuusalu and my two older brothers also decided to follow his father's example and they became clergy in the Estonian church. There are a total of 6 clergymen and 5 church musicians from my large family.

I received my school education at Kuusalu High School. I obtained my higher education in theology at the Institute of Theology of EELC. I was ordained as a deacon of EELC on January 28, 1987 and as a pastor of EELC on December 6, 1989.

I have served in several congregations in Estonia. First years in Püha, Mustjala and Muhu congregations and then 20 years St. Paul´s Congregation in Viljandi. In addition to serving congregations, I have been involved in various positions in the field of diaconal work of the Estonian Church for many years and have also served Estonians in Helsinki, Finland.

Since August 4, 2011, I am the pastor of St. Peter's Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church in Toronto. I am the Dean of the North American Deanery of EELC.
