Currently Copenhagen based, I have previously lived and worked in New York, Dublin, London and around Italy, and I still travel, whenever there is a chance.
Born in Copenhagen in 1977 into a house of a TV-producing-directing mother, a fine- artist father, and a publishing house step-dad - the foundations for a life in the arts was there.
Graduated in 2004 from The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, as a conservatory trained actress, I now work freelance in Theatre, Film, TV- and commercials. I started writing professionally around twelve-years back and I continuously too work with fine-art in drawing, painting, and photography.
In 2013 when living in London I graduated as a Graphic Novel drawer- and writer from The Royal Drawing School, and two days later as a Burlesque performer from The Burlesque Baby Academy. Both educations changed and opened my eyes to understanding myself as an artist, writer and performer, and I continue to be amazed by these ways and directions in approaching the work.
I am fluent in Danish and English, and have a good knowledge of the Scandinavian languages. Some Italian, German and French, and I am starting to learn Greek!
