It is my passion to create worlds and to tell stories.
I studied stage and costume design at the University of Arts Berlin, and graduated with a Diploma in 2009.
Working in different fields I started out creating stages and costumes for opera, modern dance, performances and modern theatre plays. I worked among others for, Bayreuther Festspiele, Komische Oper Berlin, Berlin Philharmonics.
For 16 years I have worked on film projects, as a production designer, costume designer, production design assistant, art director, storyboard artist, concept artist, model maker, and set decorator. The films I worked on were nominated on numerous international film festivals like, Sundance, Berlinale, and Cannes.
2012 I cofounded the performance platform KOIKATE which was awarded the Hauptstadt Kulturfonds / Capital Culture Grant in 2016.
A recent work of KOIKATE is the show GASWERK!KABOOM! which I directed with Sebastian K. König.
2014 I published the electro synth pop Album Theft Yuck Mess with The Fan.
2017 I studied vocals at the British & Irish Modern Music Institute and was part of THE HAUS, the worlds biggest street art exhibition. Our installation #wemakeeuropegreatagain had over 80 000 visitors.
