I am an artist, teacher and community-builder, born and based in Berlin. My work revolves around questions of migration, place-making and belonging. The more I explore, the more I value the power of bringing things together. People, disciplines, perspectives, Yes and No and the land between. I work alone and in collectives, each with their own energy and potential, and mostly on long-term projects that allow for relationships with people and place. 


Publications include The Independent, Huffington Post, AFP, Bloomberg, Grazia France, Marie Claire Australia, The American Scholar, Berliner Morgenpost, Der Tagesspiegel, Neues Deutschland.  


Fluent in German, English, French, Portugese; basic Spanish and Arabic.


I am interested to hear from and participate in projects across the globe. Get in touch via:
