This becomes apparent in the laudatory speech for GEDOK Literaturförderpreis 2020 with which I was awarded. As a thank you, I improvised a medley from home, since the event was cancelled in 2020.
In writing, performing, and my whole life it is my duty to create something beautiful and to protect the emotional element. I believe artists have the responsibility to create experiences that bring people closer to the good, true, and beautiful.

I am proud to present my current projects to you: my book of English poems, “BODY TAG”, and poetry songs that I put out online for you to enjoy! The song lyrics are taken from my German collection of poems “Meer-Maid”, which was published by Wolfbach Verlag in 2015 & 2016.
For two years, I studied Creative Writing in Detroit and could first really express myself in the performances there, as well as in the American poetry slam scene. In the Motor City, I also picked up the musicality and elements of rap. So it makes sense that in 2020, the anthology “RESPECT – THE POETRY OF DETROIT MUSIC” appeared with my poem closing the book. Eminem is among the famous contributors to this collection of great song lyrics and poetry.
