Management for Performing Arts, Events, Marketing & HR Projects

„The grass is greener where you water it.“ (N. Barringham)

Born and raised bilingually in Germany I completed my undergraduate studies with a Bachelor in ‚Arts, Music & Entertainment Management‘ at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. International engagements followed, and I was responsible for the daily show production management on land and at sea for the performing arts and live events. I have also worked as a consultant and senior project manager for various clients outside of the arts sector in digital marketing and human resources. Most recently it has been my pleasure to produce musicals and jazz concert series. You can visit my portfolio for an overview of projects and clients.

I offer over 20 years of arts management and a lifetime of international experience. In addition to my practical skills, I completed my postgraduate studies with a Master’s degree in Industrial & Organizational Psychology and a diploma in German labor law. My combined knowledge in operative management, employment law, psychology, and marketing provides a solid foundation for any communication and production challenges. I thrive in complex working environments and enjoy energetic, heterogeneous teams and projects. My leadership style is characterized by appreciation and integrity.
