Berlin, Germany

I am a librarian for Artistic, Rare and Early Printed Books at the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin - Preußischer Kulturbesitz. Until 2013 I studied Library and Information Science at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

Before that I was living in Vienna, working at prominent art institutions like the Hofburg, the Schönbrunn Palace, the Dorotheum auction house, the Kunsthalle Wien and the Österreichische Galerie Belvedere. I specialized as an Information Professional and underwent trainings in cultural management, diversity and human rights.

In Innsbruck I studied History of Art and jobbed at the Kunstraum Innsbruck, the Festwochen der Alten Musik, the Tiroler Landestheater and at the Kunsthalle Tirol im Salzlager Hall i.T. After I had finished an artistic secondary school, I did an intercultural year in Asia.

I am working in a voluntary capacity as a District Council Member with a Neighbourhood Management in Berlin-Kreuzberg, I aid in assisting refugees and I am a student in a natural healing practitioner training programme focused on psychotherapy.
