I have a bachelor in journalism & communication and a master in art education. In 2009, I started working in the music industry as a music PR person for Irascible Music. In 2014, my business partner and I had the opportunity to take over the company and since then, I am directing the Zurich branch of Irascible Music and Irascible Records.
Furthermore, I am a founding member as well as a board member of Switzerland's independent record label association IndieSuisse, a member of the Fachgruppe Phonoproduzierende at Swissperform, a former board member of the RFV Basel as well as a jury member of various committees (Popkredit Zurich, Arvore Stiftung, and many more).
My private and professional lives collide (intentionally), since I love to consume music in any possible shape. I am genuinely fond of guitar music, but I don't want to be tied down to a single preferred particular style.
In addition to good music, I love good company, good food, good drinks, good vibes, my boyfriend and my daughter.
