Who I am

I am a freelance choreographer with an ultimate drive to share my creative visions and art. I connect deeply with dance as I feel it is a way of communication that transcends word and speech. To be moved by dance is to be moved by raw emotion. For this reason, I endeavour to share as much of my work as possible with audiences, in the hope that they will be as moved by this art form as I am.

From the beginning of the 2024-2025 season and onwards, I will be taking on the mantel of deputy artistic director and house choreographer for Ballet Karlsruhe. I very much look forward to assuming this role and am eager to bring my work to the city of Karlsruhe and its visitors.

Prior to this new beginning, I was a long standing member of the Hamburg Ballet, with over 11 seasons of experience under my belt. It was here that I discovered a new avenue of artistry in Choreography. I am inspired by elements of both classical and contemporary bodies of movement and almost always pursue the objective of narrating a story through my work. With the knowledge gained through my experiences and with thanks to the guidance of my mentors, I am able to pave the way for myself and create new works confidently. I strive to always create and bring to fruition the best product for both my dancers and audiences.
