The Peddle Journal

There’s a lot more to Finland than endless saunas and impressive social services.

We wanted to share some of the remarkable things happening in the creative fields here,

so we created The Peddle Journal, an arts & leisure section

that brings you the best in classic & contemporary Finnish culture.

  • “For a novelist, it’s crucial to know your writing is in good hands. As for editing help, I can’t think of anyone I’d more willingly recommend than Ben. He has smoothed the wrinkles, inconsistensies and bad style in my writing so many times that I now go directly to him for all my English-language needs. Ben’s skillful craftsmanship, superb ear for the all-important subtleties, and reliable, efficient service make him worth every penny.”
    -Jussi Valtonen, Finlandia Prize-winning novelist of He Eivät Tiedä Mitä Tekevät
  • “Ben is a great communicator, awesome to work with, and achieves results through his systematic approach to getting things done.”
    -Rami Korhonen, CEO, Playmysong
  • “Ben did a great job helping us understand how to communicate with clients around the world. Not only did he create our website and outreach copy – he also helped establish an innovative plan for Ruste’s future development.”

Who's Behind The Peddle?

Ben Norris

Founder / CEO


Meet Ben. He was raised on the salty shores of Virginia Beach before studying English at the College of William & Mary–an American university so old that its original construction was delayed by an “Indian uprising” in 1622. He graduated with highest honors and decided to follow his ears and his interest in music to New York, where he began working in the entertainment business with Jeff Rabhan and David Schulhof. He stumbled across a handful of Finns that fascinated him–Aki Kaurismäki, Pentti Saarikoski, and Hugo Simberg, to name a few–so he applied for a Fulbright Grant to Finland, which he was awarded in 2012. That summer he traded Manhattan for Helsinki, where he’s been living, working, and roaming through snowy streets since.
