Biography

Born in 1985 in Basle, Switserland, I started playing the harp at the age of 11. After finishing high school I began studying acting at the renomated “Hochschule für Schauspielkunst Ernst Busch Berlin.” After a year I left the school, started traveling with my Celtic harp and became a busker and a storyteller. I performed in places as varied as Switzerland, Ireland, Italy, the U.S., Argentina, Ecuador and Brasil (Theaterspektakel Zürich, Literaturhaus Basel, Museum der Kulturen Basel, Casa de la Cultura Ecuador, Rio Harp Festival, Emily Harvey Foundation NYC etc.). I produced 2 Albums, “Crossing Oceans” (2011) and “Lullaby Lies” (2013) and participated in many other musical as well as artistic projects, realized by friends and allies around the world. In 2018 I completed my MA in philosophy and German literature at the University of Basle.

 

I live with my family in the Black Forest and the Andean Mountains where I work as a performer and a scholar of feminist philosophy. Since 2017 I have been asked on various occasions to give shape to ceremonies such as baptisms, weddings, funerals and other rites. Coming from a spiritual background I felt the call and the courage to comply with these requests. My ceremonies have been highly appreciated, holding creativity as well as the individual desires of my clients in a most central place.
