I was born in the south of Germany in August 1980.

I studied Fashion Merchandising and International Trade & Marketing at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, graduating with a BA summa cum laude in 2005.

Before I started working as a self employed designer in 2010, I had worked in marketing, PR and client relationship management – on the agency side at Elemental Design and Liganova, and in-house, for Escada, Hugo Boss, Brioni and St. John Knits.

I have lived and worked in various cities around the world, including New York, Los Angeles, Orlando, London, Rome, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart, Munich and since 2010 Berlin.
