For 18 years I have been a professional diver in Germany as well as in college in the United States. I started acting at the age of 15 with the movie "Stopped on Track" by Andreas Dresen. This won the German Film Award for Best Feature Film in 2012.

Since then I have been in two feature films directed by Axel Ranisch and several short films at the German Film and Television Academy Berlin (DFFB) and at Bowling Green State University.


I am currently a MFA in Film student at the Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.


Starting Fall 2016 I studied Theater with a specialization in acting/directing and a minor in film studies, in Bowling Green, Ohio.

I finished my Bachelor of Arts in Communication (B.A.C) degree in May 2020 and worked on my Master of Arts in Theater until Summer 2021. Part of my studies included a Graduate Assistantship in the Universities Scene Shop, where I build scenery and supervised undergraduate students.

Starting Fall 2021 I decided to pursue a Master of Fine Arts in Film at Ohio University which is:

"A professional three-year program of study for talented individuals seeking advanced training in directing, screenwriting, producing, cinematography, editing and motion picture sound with a solid background in film history, theory, and criticism."

During my first year at Ohio University’s School of Film, I directed two short narrative films, filmed one short documentary, assistant directed three other shorts and was the assistant camera on two narrative short filmsl.
