Her work is marked by a diversity of topics and shows courage in facing challenging issues, always finding new and refreshing perspectives.

Her interest in creative and artistic related areas started early, at the age of three, when she had her first ballet lesson, and which ten years later resulted in her admission to the renowned dance academy Folkwang Hochschule der Künste in Essen/Germany. In her final school years, she developed an increasing interest in film, as well as the wish to study abroad. Consequently, she decided to move to London where she graduated with “First Class Honours” as Bachelor in Film Studies in 2002. Two years later, she graduated as Master in Television and Video Production at the famous Media School in Bournemouth/England.

Her feature film debut took place after moving to Berlin, where she started working for the film production company Totho GmbH in 2005. Soon she was asked to write and direct the documentary Science of Horror, which had its national cinematic release on August 5th 2008. The film was highly acclaimed and celebrated by the German press.

Since then, she has been involved in various productions and now, after extensive international research travels, she is planning a new documentary film.
