Managing Director in Wien, Österreich
In 2014 I founded MusiConsulting, a network for music editorial services, text creation, translation, layout, print production and content management for websites and social media. In addition we offer research/dramaturgy, pre-concert talks and support the development of new formats (e.g. mobile apps) for concert-goers.
As of 2017 I have expanded MusiConsulting - we are now offering our portfolio to the entire German speaking world.
Born in Vienna into a music-loving family with Austrian and US-American roots, I studied musicology for two semesters before studying classical guitar, piano and voice at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. In 1998 I was a co-founder of Radio Stephansdom, Vienna's first private classical radio station, where I worked as music editor and presenter.
In 2001 I moved to Graz and was the head of communications at the Opera House and the theatre for young audiences «Next Liberty». After completing my studies (2006) I worked at the Playhouse in Derry (Northern Ireland) where I directed a play by Wolf Mankowitz. I returned to Austria where I was a member of the artistic administration at the Brucknerhaus Linz: I planned and organised concerts with classical and chamber music and was director of production for the Linzer Klangwolke 2007 "Six Tales of Time". Later in 2007 I joined the Grafenegg Festival and the Tonkünstler Orchestra as editor and dramaturg, I held this position until 2014. In this capacity I presented concerts, radio programmes and pre-concert talks at the Musikverein Vienna, the Festspielhaus St. Pölten and in Grafenegg. In late 2014 I was appointed Secretary General of the Jeunesses Musicales Austria, the country's largest promoter of classical concerts and programs for young audiences - I held this position until September 2017.
