Born under the North Star, I began investigating the depths of the German musical ocean early on, learning to spiritedly swim and dive in its waters!

During my longtime experience as a performing and studio singer for various bands, artists and radio and TV advertisements, I have been able to work with many wonderful musicians, producers and gifted people – and enjoy having the best job in the world!

After my solo project as a singer/songwriter, which produced the album releases “Abgeschminkt“ and “5th Dimension,“ I began writing songs for other artists and discovered my passion for children’s music in the process.

For several years now I have been enthusiastically passing on my knowledge as vocal coach to young artists and (as a member of the artistic staff) at casting shows. And there’s much more to come!

At the moment I‘m writing my first vocal coaching book.

“Life is like walking on water – if you stand still, you’re apt to drown!“

Welcome to My World! ;o)
