I have also studied yoga and herbal medicine. Besides nature and acting I also find music and DJ-ing one of my great passions.
I am into growth and progress. I like to collaborate in projects that can open new perspectives and expand my experience and methods as an actress. It is important to me that the work I do has something to say and improve in our society. I believe that a work of art can and should touch the audience, widen their perception, and make a difference within themselves. Art is the language that we all can understand.
Before my studies as an actress, I was devoted to dancing for four years, which has made me fond of working on projects that are also connected with dance, choreography or martial arts.
I enjoy challenges, new point of views and magic.
I belive in love, kindness, devotion and honesty.
