About me
With aspirations of working in the entertainment industry, I started my journey in Hamburg, Germany, studying film production and photography. After graduation, I was eager to expand my expertise in digital and influencer marketing, working for Pulse Advertising, one of Europes leading Influencer marketing agencies. Working closely with founders Lara Daniel and Chris Kastenholz, both achieving a place on the Forbes 30 under 30 list, allowed me specialise my skillset and gave me a tremendous amount of insight in the industry as well as startup culture. I went to Los Angeles and eventually ended up moving to London full time, where I was fortunate enough to meet Thomas Knights, Creative Director of Red Hot and started working for the company as Digital Marketing Manager, intending to work towards a more significant role within the company. Now, almost two years later, I have built a team of incredibly skilled and talented individuals and am working as the Managing Director for Red Hot. My work allows me to combine my creative background as well as production and business mindset all in one. I enjoy making new connections outside of the job and expanding my network to connect with different entrepreneurs, leaders and creatives all over the globe, resulting in projects like the production of Bimini's latest music video or working with LGBTQ+ magazines to talk about matters of diversity and representation. Outside of work I'm usually travelling, exploring different cities and cultures, meeting new people and I spend a good part of my life staying active and keeping fit. Most times I will document my travels and shoot locations and lifestyle imagery either digitally or film.
