Job TitleCommissioning Editor

Company NameNDR (Norddeutscher Rundfunk)


After obtaining a Master of Arts degree in Radio/TV/Film from California State University Northridge, I started working as Junior Producer for the German version of Sesame Street, then produced by Studio Hamburg Productions. In 1998, I moved to the editorial side of production and became a Commissioning Editor at NDR broadcasting, Department for Youth & Family Entertainment. There, I have developed and produced programs from "Sesame Street" to the "Peppercorns", cooking shows and many international TV series (among them "Blue Water High", "Emma’s Chatroom", "In Your Dreams" (all with Australian co-partners), "Trio" (with NRK) and "Heirs of the Night" (a Dutch/Norwegian/Begian/German copro). In between, a five year hiatus from 2005 to 2010 took me to Singapore, where I continued to work for NDR as a freelance Producer, and also trained to become a certified museum docent.
