Born in 1980 in the rural Mosel area, I have been living in Bochum since 2002. Working as an actor for 13 years now, I am also as artistic director for my own improv group HaiLight since 2006. Additionally I also act in plays conducted by the theaterpädagogische Werkstatt in schools in NRW since 2008. Roles as a regular cast member at the Theater Freudenhaus (2013/14) and taking part in several off-theatre productions (e.g. by kainkollektiv and TAD) are further deepening my experience as actor/instructor.
In 2008 I took up teaching on a professional base in the field of education and theatre, especially where these two fields come together and ever since I have been working for different clients developing and conducting various projects.
Here is a small selection:
Caritas Herne - theaterproject "Heimspiel Herne"
AWO Essen - theater with elementary schoolkids
SKF Essen Mitte - theaterpädagogische Lernförderung
BOSKOP - workshops for students of Ruhr-Universität
interTWINed - instructor at european youth drama festival
Herner Netzwerk - performance about homelessness
Bildungswerk der humanistischen Union - theaterworkshop with teens about political education
Ruhr-Uni-Bochum - simulated conversations with students from different courses of studies
Stiftung der deutschen Wirtschaft - educational trainer for socially disadvantaged elementary students
In 2013 I succesfully completed my training asTheaterpädagoge (BuT) at the TPZ Essen.
