Meeting celebrity impressionist Jim Meskimen. He and my husband are good friends and Jim told me that he loves my German accent. He knows that I am interested in voice overs and character voices. His advice was a very good one "everyone starts with something because he has fun with it. That's exactly the right start point."

I started uploading video content on YouTube and realized soon enough, that I am able to do a pretty good impression/impersonation of comedian Emo Philips.
My voice is nearly always described as warm, friendly, soothing, calming and caring.
I worked in 2 different call centers in Germany, providing tech support over the telephone, helping customers to fix problems. Customers always confirmed they loved my soothing voice and even co workers told me many times, that sitting beside me calmed them down in a stressful time!
Because of the work in 2 major call centers (Medion - Computer company) and (E-Plus - cellphone network provider) I got trained to speak in a warm, friendly and calming voice. Many customers were angry when they came on the line, and my job was more or less to calm them down to work correctly with them and finally fix their problems.
In my 2nd grade school in Germany I won a certificate for being the best reader of the region. I had to read a chapter of a book in front of an audience.
2007 I completed my secondary school degree in Germany.
2008 I went to a computer course, also in Germany, that I completed with high success.
2009 - end of 2012 - I worked in tech support in a company that manages computer and cellphone problems. I worked in 2 different projects (Medion - Computer company) and (E-Plus - cellphone network provider)
2013 - 25th of July - I worked in yet another tech support company. This time I managed a German mail provider called OK. I answered question per mail and per telephone.
