Currently Copenhagen based, I have previously lived and worked in New York, Dublin, London and around Italy, and I still travel, whenever there is a chance.

Born in Copenhagen in 1977 into a house of a TV-producing-directing mother, an absent artist-painting father, and a publishing house-literary step-dad, I guess the foundations for a life in the arts was destined. 

Graduated in 2004 from The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, as a conservatory trained actress, I now work freelance as an actress in Theatre, Film, TV- and commercials. I started writing professionally around ten-years back, and I also work with fine-art in drawing, painting, and photography, my passion from an early age, being sent to children's art school already at the age of 12.

In 2013 when living in London I graduated as a Graphic Novel drawer- and writer from The Royal Drawing School, and two days later as a Burlesque performer from The Burlesque Baby Academy. Both educations changed and opened my eyes to understanding myself as an artist, writer and performer, and I continue to be amazed by these ways and directions in approaching the work. 

I am fluent in Danish and English, and have a good knowledge of the Scandinavian languages. Some Italian, German and French, and I want to learn Greek!


I just received a fantastic research grant from The Association of Danish Film Directors for a new film documentary, that I am working away on, to be filmed in USA.
Played the supporting role of Mette in the shortfilm Not just for the laughs to premiere in Dragør Bio in November 2019. 
Have recently started directing artistic pop-music videos and am having a wonderful and very fun time with it, so far 9 music-videos, and more in the making.
