When I came here for the first time from my native Germany, I was a young art history student. I’m still exploring New York; it’s still breathtaking. I’m part of it now, part of its pulse. My passion is for people – the ways we chose to navigate the world, we create our world, create culture, rhythms of living. I love sharing my passion for this city! I was born and raised in Germany. After finishing high school I moved to Paris, France to study French language and culture, earning a degree in Tourism from the Ecole Superieure de Tourisme. Back in Germany I studied at the Joh, Gutenberg University in Mainz: Art History, history and American Studies. During my Masters program I won a scholarship for Columbia Univ. in NYC – perfect! The learning always continues: designing and teaching classes at FDU, researching artists and exhibitions at the museums I work at (MoMA, Guggenheim, The Jewish Museum), following the development of neighborhoods like Dumbo, Williamsburg, the Meatpacking District and the Lower East Side, new constructions: skyscrapers, waterfront, memorials – the city is forever changing!
