Born in Germany, I grew up in the south of France, not far from Avignon.
Between 2002 and 2009 I studied in England. After finishing foundation studies in Art and Design I successfully graduated with a BA in Applied Arts from the University of Brighton and an MA (with distinction) in Jewellery Design from the Birmingham School of Jewellery, BCU. I moved to Berlin in 2010 in order to complete my practical training as a goldsmith. I have been living and working there since.
