I was born and raised in a small town in Northern Germany. I went to college in Hamburg, Germany and got my degree in Business Administration with a major in Finance. At the same time I worked for one of the biggest German companies, Lufthansa Technik. When I graduated college I got a job offer from the company’s local office in Sun Valley, CA. I moved to LA four years ago, in October 2010. I worked as a Sales Manager for a while until the company moved their office to Oklahoma. Faced with he decision to either go back to Germany or move to Oklahoma, I made the decision that it was time to pursue what I have always wanted to do, my biggest passion: Acting and Music.
I enrolled at UCLA Extension and completed their Music Business program to learn more about the music industry. At the same time I already started working on my single “My Goodbye” which I co-wrote with a French producer who was signed to Universal Music in France. The single got radio play in Germany, on a station called Radio Jade and got some radio play here in LA as well, I did an hour long radio interview for the Freddie Pee Ready Radio Show.
While working on my music, taking classes at UCLA, I also started taking acting classes again. I am a student of the Meisner Technique at the renown Joanne Baron/D.W. Brown studio, who coach stars such as Halle Berry.
Since my first audition, I have been cast in over 50 projects and my acting career keeps me immensely busy, sometimes going from project to project with only a few days break. I love acting, it is my biggest passion.
Even as a child of 6 years old, I knew I belong on stage. I created my own theatre shows at the age of 8, studied my favorite Brother Grimm fairy tale and memorized every single line from the movie and taught it to my neighbor kids. When we were ready, we sent out invitations and performed the play in front of all neighbors. Since I can think I’ve been involved in dance groups and theatre/musical productions.
So it came natural to me to go back to that since acting and music is in my nature.
In the US I was part of plays such as Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of the Moon” at Next Stage Theatre in Hollywood. The short “The Relay” in which I am paying the lead role of “Palmer”, has won “Best short” and I have won “Best Actress” in a film festival.
I have worked with big names such as Sean Patrick Flanery who is known for his work in Boondock Saints. I worked with him, playing his character’s girlfriend in the feature “The King’s Rook”. Moreover I worked on the new Fast & Furious 7.
I got a lead role in a new German TV show, called “Venice Beach”, which we shot in Venice Beach and Santa Monica. It was produced by filmpool, Germany’s biggest TV production company for the German network RTL, Europe’s second-largest TV, radio, and production company.
I’m currently working on 2 feature films in which I am playing the lead character. The first one is a suspense thriller, called “The Lone Road”, the other one is a medieval fantasy film based on the Red Riding Hood fairly tale. It is called “In The Woods”, in which I am portraying the character of Red Riding Hood.
