Actress (SAG/AFTRA), producer, traveler, based in New York and Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

I was born and raised in Frankfurt am Main Germany and lived part-time in various countries in Asia and then in Mallorca and Malaga Spain.

Early on I started my career as an actress and model.

Over the years I was involved in many international productions.

As an actress, I can be seen in OUTCALL, CHECKMATE, THE CHILD, BROOKLYN BANKER, PIZZA JOINT, BERLIN I LOVE YOU (South American edition), LITTLE WEST 12th STREET, COBRA 11, and TRECE among others. 

In 2008 I founded the film production company YMC Films in New York and in 2012 YMC Entertainment, a branch in Germany.

Productions and Co-Productions include FORGET ME NOT (2009), THE CHILD (2012), an adaptation of a best-selling novel by Sebastian Fitzek, CHECKMATE, KEEP YOUR ENEMIES CLOSER (2013), HOME STAY (2018), BERLIN I LOVE YOU (2018), the action thriller THE OTHER PATH (2019) shot in Istanbul and more.

Documentary co-productions include STICK 'EM UP RELOADED (2015), THE CUBAN HERD (2016), and GLORY PERU (2018).

For many years I have been intensively studying natural sciences, eastern and western healing methods and metaphysics, the physical theories that connect the spiritual with the material world and have participated in seminars and courses.

Due to my scientific experience, marketing and entertainment background, I additionally advise international companies, in the fields of health, science and biotechnology among others.
