About me – A Soliloquy

When were you born? And where?

In 1980, in Germany. In a town called Halle on the river Saale.

How would you put your history in a nutshell?

I had a wonderful childhood and youth at my home stomping ground. When I was 18, I moved to Marburg on the river Lahn to study American Studies, Media Science and (Media-)Education. However, I did not only study in Hesse. I also went on a big journey and studied abroad, in Knoxville, Tennessee/USA. When I was a student there and in Germany, I gained first experiences in radio and TV as a freelancer. I worked, for example, for several years for one of Germany's biggest TV stations - for Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen, better known as ZDF.

Sounds exciting! What did you do after finishing uni?

I wound up in Bavaria. From 2006 I worked for a media agency and later as well for a production company in Augsburg – as a producer, copywriter, project manager, and voice-over artist.

And who taught you the art of voice acting?

I have had the great fortune of having studied voice with Barbara Volland. Besides, Gabriele Lange, Stephan Dewes, Sonnja Helfrecht-Riedel, Sabine Appelhagen as well as Michael Zimmer taught me how to use my voice as a wonderful tool and reinforced my rhetorical skills.

Last question: Why do you live in Finland now?

Because of love. And getting to know another country is always a great challenge. You only live once! By the way, my little family lives in Pirkkala, near Tampere. Since 2014 I work from there as a full-time self-employed German voice-over artist and copywriter for customers worldwide.
