Apart from countless advertisements, not-so-real Reality shows, some series, fashion shoots and a few shortfilms, I had the good fortune of working on the movie "Traumland" ("Dreamland") that played in theatres and was awarded at Zurich Film Festival.

I'm always looking for a new challenge. Every character deserves respect, and I'm willing to get down and dirty, and go into the farthest places in their minds to really unlock that vulnerability. I'm a very focused, hardworking actress, who brings good mood, energy and efficiency to set. Having fun for me, comes with doing what I do, and doing it well - so you will never find me unprepared.

Part-time model - paid commercial work


I've been fortunate enough to work on different campaigns with a multitude of Photographers. Whether it was shooting in a waterfall during the golden hour when relaxation comes naturally, or whether it's for festival fashion presented in daring poses that need more focus and power to seem effortless.

I work efficiently and follow direction, without involving my ego. Simply put, it's not about me. It's about the integrity of the shot and the vision of the person directing.
But I'm no wallflower and always try to make bold choices.

TV & Reality

I've acted in many TV-ads (National and International) and hosted two shows for a local TV-network.
I'm very comfortable and familiar with multi-angle shoots and love the excitement of shooting a series! Such a role is something I'm extremely passionate about, as one really gets to know the character and see them evolve over time. I'm a true team-player, so working with a good crew is fantastic. The most inspiring professionals I've ever worked with included Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Dir. "Amélie", 2001) and Janusz Kaminski (DoP "Schindler's list", 1993). Working with such amazing individuals was a humbling experience that I take with me, every time I enter a new set.
