I spent most of my childhood and youth in Tschiertschen-Praden (Switzerland). From 1982 to 1989 I attended the "Bündner Kantonsschule" (high cool diploma) in Chur and during my photo engineering studies from 1991 to 1993 at the University of Applied Sciences in Cologne I started working in the TV industry in 1991. Until 2004 I worked as editor, production manager, head of production for German and international companies like Fremantle Germany, Pearson Television or the RTL subsidiary Stormy Entertainment.
From 2004, as CEO, I led the development of the Eyeworks Germany Group into one of the leading independent TV and film producers in German-speaking countries and was responsible for the productions "Hape Kerkeling Live," "Der große IQ-Test," "Schwiegertochter gesucht," "Wilsberg," "Die Lottokönige" or "Rach, der Restauranttester," among others, which were awarded the Bavarian and German Television Awards and the Golden Camera.
From October 2012, I was head of ZDF's main editorial department Show and during that time developed TV formats such as "Bares für Rares," "Die Anstalt" and "Die Helene Fischer Show." From 2015 to 2018, I was Executive Director of Bavaria Entertainment GmbH.


I started my career in the TV and film industry at the age of 15 with one of the leading roles in the youth film "Freundinnen & andere Monster". Further appearances as an actress in film and TV productions followed, such as "Sissis kleine Schwester", "Tatort", "Unser Charly" and "SK Kölsch". In 2000, I started working behind the camera as a material assistant at Bavaria Film in Munich, before joining Endemol in 2001 as an editor for productions such as "Nur die Liebe zählt" and "Rosen vom Ex". 

In 2004, I worked as an assistant director for the ARD pre-evening series "Berlin, Berlin."
As a producer, I supervised a weekly ZDF-Wiso series with journalist Ulrich Kienzle for four years starting in 2004. This was followed by further positions as producer, director, executive producer and creative director at various German production companies.

In October 2018, together with Oliver, I founded the media company Fabiola GmbH, based in Cologne. In addition to Oliver and myself, the shareholders and founding members of Fabiola include the Belgian production companies Woestijnvis, Lecter Media and De Mensen.
