I was born in a Slovene family in Austria, as part of the Slovene minority, settled close to the border. At the age of 5 I started to learn how to play the piano and took lessons for 10 years. Besides, singing, drawing and nature were my main interests during
After school, I moved from the village to Vienna to study fashion design. Besides studying, I was part of our minority's student organisation KSŠŠD, which is also part of
YEN - the largest network of youth organisations of autochthonous, national and linguistic minorities in Europe.
I was leading KSŠŠD for two years, gathering a lot of knowledge regarding teamwork, motivation, project and event production and transforming vision into action.
I finished my fashion diploma in spring 2012, by turning my diploma collection into my first stop-motion film, titled Countdown.
In 2012 I moved to Ljubljana, Slovenia, where I did my acting studies at the State Academy for theatre, radio, film and television (AGRFT). The human body became my main interest - movement of the body, expression through the body, body language and detailed manipulation of body and mind.
Since our academy included drama and film, I got the chance to gather my first experiences in film quickly. During the second half of my study I attended camera classes at the academy and got the opportunity to direct a few short movies.
In theatres I have been working in SMG - Slovensko Mladinsko Gledališče / Mladinsko Theatre, SNG Drama Ljubljana, APT - Anton Podbevšek Theatre in Novo Mesto, MiniTeater and Theatre Glej; furthermore I am active in the bilingual off-theatre scene in Austria, where I also direct my own plays and monodramas. In movies, I starred in 9 feature films, two TV- and web-series and more than 15 short films.
After finishing my acting studies diploma in 2017, I worked as an intern and production assistant at NOSOROGI film production for one year.
In 2016 I co-founded AVE NIM - multimedia and arts production, where I work as a producer for short films, video spots, off-theatre productions and guerilla feature films.
Today I am working as an actress,
musician, director and producer.
