biography

I was born and grew up in East Germany, lived in London throughout most of the nineties, and moved to the United States in 1998, where at first I lived and worked in New York City. During a short visit to New Orleans in 2000 I fell in love with the city and decided to relocate permanently, adopting New Orleans as my home. I have a background in linguistics, decorative design, education and art, and have studied in Germany (spending most of my college years in Potsdam), Russia (two semesters of college in Rostov-on-Don), London, San Diego and New Orleans. I have been living and working in New Orleans since 2001.
