Being a working actress in international film productions such as "The Downfall", the Netflix film "La Otra Casa" with Elena Anya and Germany productions like Katie Fforde movies and series ("Über die Grenze", "SoKo"or "Polizeiruf 110"), I.AM all about sharing my experience and skills I´d gathered within the last 20 years of my constant formation, my cooperation with Casting Directors and Film Productions.

In the corporate world  I.AM being called the N°1 Presence & Personality Trainer in German speaking countries; CEO´s and business/public speakers are my clients since 2013. My method "Physical Awareness" helps any performer to reach her/his next level of confidence, intuition and self determination. Specific physical and visual meditations (some with a sword) get both, actors and business people, to step into their potential, get inspired and be rather decisive.

My mission at I.AM and I.CAN is to bring artists together: THE TRIBE is an artistic bunch of talents meeting in Mallorca to make films, enhance their skills and empower their personality.
