I was born in Germany’s oldest City, Trier, where I had the great privilege of growing up in a multilingual household and traveling frequently around Europe and the United States. When it came time for me to go to school, however, we settled in Germany. The only thing I liked about school was the fact that at some point each day, classes ended and I could escape to the barre of ballet class. Somehow, I always knew I was going to be an actress which is why, from an early age, I took these classes very seriously and began working non-stop, knowing it would serve me well one day. The performing arts and especially the theater became my home. I was the kid who would not stop calling or would not leave before being given that job she really wanted so badly. Growing up as a child actress provided me with the incredible experience of working both on stage and screen, portraying young characters and learning from wonderfully talented and smart people. The Theater in Trier became my first "stage home" in my pre-teen years, I had amazing opportunities, from dancing at the Philharmonie Luxembourg, to the invaluable experience of studying at Schauspiel Frankfurt. I always had some reason or another to be in front of the camera. After taking a break and catching my breath, I studied Drama at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, both in New York City and Los Angeles from which I graduated in 2020. Today I happily live in NYC and spend much time working and dreaming in Germany.

I am the founder of the Resisters Journal which is a space by and for women (and everyone who identifies with womanhood) who are interested in raising their voices and standing strong together. I also lead the Budding Artist Change Group, which offers young, budding, female artists a space to create change and fight for equality in their work industry.
