After my high school graduation in 1998, I studied music (drums, singing and songwriting, piano) for 3 years at the music university in vienna, and then moved to Los Angeles for a year to collaborate with various artists. After my return to Europe I established my band "Zweitfrau" and own music studio together with my company partner Lex Machat. We toured with our band successfully in the years between 2004 and 2014 in Europe, and we were constantly in the music charts with our music (up to top 1 from the top 10). After signing our label deal with Warner Germany in 2006, we produced our own videos which aired on MTV and Viva Germany. We built our own label and team with a business investor and created a lot of attention in the international media world. We toured with such stars as Pink, Revolverheld, Mia, Madsen, Mika, and played at the Wiener Festwochen opening, Lifeball, JUMP Radio Tour in Germany and many more events. We received radio airplay with our songs on Ö3, Antenne Bayern, Bayern 3 and others.
In 2009 I decided to become a yoga teacher as well, so I studied yoga for 2 years next to touring with "Zweitfrau". I teach Yoga - Hatha flow, hot, and Nuad Yoga & Reki, and Yoga for pregnant women and their babies, in weekly classes in my own Yogastudio and I give seminars all over Europe and in Los Angeles. Yoga for me isn´t just a body work out, it´s also a way of being and spiritual thinking. I started working for Global2000 in Vienna in 2011 to help save our environment, where I worked not only as a presenter on stage at festivals such as "Tomorrow Festival", but also weekly as the leader of the UKP, an environmental savety project, with open classes for students.
Since the beginning of this period my company´s team (Lex Machat, Martin Pauser) and I created also our agency "Zweitfrau Media Lab". We create communication concepts and use public relations and tools such as producing image movies, videos and sounds, for larger firms, such as Red Bull, Wirtschaftsbund, Vienna Vikings, docLX, Radio Superfly, etc to reach campaign goals. We manage between press and VIPs for events, coordinate projects and built the creative bridge between client and the public throughout the projects.
For nearly 2 years I scouted and sourced talents for our client Red Bull TV, I consult, communicate and create for them. Before this I also worked as a Radio sales manager at Radio Superfly (Sunshine Enterprises Vienna);
To date I have collaborated with companies such as Sony Ericsson, Outletcenter Freeport, T-Mobile, Nike, Vero Moda, Theuermann, Intimissimi/Calzedonia, Carrera, Meinl, Tama Drums, AKG, Radio Superfly (Sale) and more, and have worked with artists such as Richard Dorfmeister, Rodney Hunter, Pogo, Madrid de los Austrias, Nigel Hayes, Gary Howardsing, Richard Stites - Michael Jackson, Outkast, Bubba Sparx, John Dixson - Lenny Kravitz, James Blunt and many more also as a musician.
For 2018 I plan to finish my studies with Veit Lindau “MenschenlehrerAusbildung” (after studying psychology in 1999) to work as a coach and offer more classes for hatha yoga plus pregnant women and baby-yoga in my own yogastudio.
