I am a self-taught first-time-writer and thrilled that my first Screenplay *The Sponsor* is a three times Award Winner and is blessed with nominations and honorable mention.
When I was just of age, I lived in London for a year to learn English and to orientate myself.
I started in the mid of the eighties in Hamburg as a freelance make-up artist for Teeny magazine BRAVO and Editorial BURDA for FREUNDIN etc.
After my move to Munich due to marriage I worked under the label of star make-up artist Horst Kirchberger for the fashion industry, advertising agencies as with TV editor Sabine Sauer for Bayrischer Rundfunk. The list included the famous voice Frank Sinatra in Milan, Argentine football idol Diego Maradona in Naples.
In the Studios I worked with Celebrities like football Icon Franz Beckenbauer, European Song Contest presenter Desiree Nosbusch, The list of German actors is long. To mention a few: Petra Schürmann, Hannelore Elsner, Heiner Lauterbach. Bandleader Chris Norman from Smokie or Richard Kleidermann. Germanys top show-master Thomas Gottschalkand reputable photographers like Michael Leis, Kai Mahrholz, the former Teen mag: MÄDCHEN, PRIMA. Fashion shows of Levis, Triumph and for Madame Magazine.
I modelt myself for CARTIER, but mostly I was behind the camera.
When I moved in the late eighties to Spain I did not have an easy re-entry after motherhood as a makeup artist. In this respect I worked as a trade fair hostess at IFEMA. After returning from Germany for divorce, I took the plunge into the real estate business in Mallorca, where I met my current spouse in 1998.
A career changer? YES
Since I am nearby a watercolour artist I feel that as a writer I get closer to myself in a script because there I can paint a world in words. The sad thing is that I discovered it late. However, it's never too late to learn. and to go for something.
2007 I started to write my first novel. This forgotten story I grabbed out 2020, in the two months lockdown during Covid. MY moment to my true ME was born.
Thus, I studied really hard until today. I watched hundreds of videos, websites of writers and filmmakers, pdf scripts of different genres to write my first screenplay draft.
Following Munich Screenplay Workshop, Garage Film, Outstanding Screenplays , etc. Webinars on Stage32 from Netflix helped me to become what I am.
