With a background of theater and circus skills she graduated in architecture 2007 and then focussed on interventions in-situ and art installations in public spaces. She works since 2005 as a light and set designer for dance, site specific theater and new circus productions.

The last years, she has performed with the Circus Charivari Collective, Pandora Circus, KieztoGo and for various site specific productions. She is also part of the Gangplank Network that develops new relationships between art and technologies through cross-media plattforms.
