I started to organize concerts and wrote articles for newspapers and magazines as a teenager. After my music study I completed a Master of Arts and Media Administration at the Institut für Kultur- und Medienmanagement of the Freie Universität Berlin. My Master thesis spotlights the history of Jazz in Germany and the situation of venues for Jazz and improvised music.

As a cultural manager I like to bring the right people together and act as an intermediary between artists, audience, politics and funders. As a media manager I have gained broad experience in the creation and implementation of (digital) content, services and campaigns in the cultural sector.

Currently I work as a freelancer and help artists, companies and institutions in the cultural sector to evaluate, optimize and (re)create their digital services and communication.


In the past 15 years I switched back and forth between permanent positions and freelance project work.

In 2018 and 2019 I worked as a project manager for Google Arts & Culture, an online platform and mobile app that teamed up with more than 2.000 museums and other cultural institutions from 80+ countries to show curated online exhibitions, artworks in high resolution, virtual/augmented reality content and more. Check out some of the projects I worked on:
