Intro


Just in case you really want to know... I was born and raised in Putney, London, my parents both viennese refugees. Went to Putney High School from age 5-18, graduated. 3 years Alsager college of education in drama and social and community studies. I worked as a school teacher, but realised after four scary years teaching in London´s more problematic schools, that I was destined for a different career. I cut my teeth in London´s finest pub/punk rock bands in the mid-late1970s, including The Elgin Marbles, Framed, Dana Gillespie and toured with the now legendary „Sadista Sisters“ in 1977, culminating in a 4 week residency at the Quartier Latin Club, Berlin.

As an internationally ignored rock star, I worked at various jobs on the way; a follow spot operator, stage manager, photographers assistant, night porter, dish washer, cook, baby sitter, breathy telephone hotline voice... whatever.

In 1983 I auditioned for and got the role of „Columbia“ in „The Rocky Horror Show“ at Hans Gratzers Schauspielhaus in Wien. Ever since I have been working and living in Vienna as an actress, singer/performer in the theatre, musicals, musical theatre, writing my own solo shows, voice-overs, translating and singing at concerts and galas.

Will not work with fish, living or dead! Really.
