She is fascinated by music from all over the world, especially tango, flamenco, Brazilian and Cuban music and plays, composes and arranges in several bands and projects as well as for theater.
Her music effortlessly blends various influences and usually involves groove and improvisation.

Her bow was made by Anja Clara Ruschke, who also takes care of sound maintenance.
