I received my Master’s Degree from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London and worked as an assistant director at Deutsche Oper Berlin, Theater an der Wien, De Nationale Opera in Amsterdam and Schauspielhaus Zürich with directors such as Christof Loy, Alvis Hermanis, Barbara Frey, René Pollesch, Stefan Pucher, Hans Neuenfels, and Kasper Holten. In 2014, I staged my first work at the Schauspielhaus Zürich titled A Hero of Our Time, after the eponymous novel by Mikhail Lermontov which I adapted for the stage. I am a fellow of the German Academic Scholarship Foundation and a member of the European Academy of Music Theatre. Being an educated pianist, I won the German federal competition Jugend musiziert, Hesse, twice, in 2004 and 2006. I received ballet training at the National Opera House of Ukraine and the Staatstheater Kassel.
