Welcome to my website!

I'm a yodeling German girl living in LA with a love for singing, animals, and many passions.


I was born in Munich and grew up in a small village in Bavaria, Germany. At 13, I discovered my passion for music and also became the only vegetarian I knew at the time. After finishing high school, I attended a vocational school for music in Regensburg, where I met some of my first real-life role models who inspired me to continue my studies in the United States.

I studied vocal performance at the LA College of Music in Pasadena and graduated with an Associate of Arts degree in 2014. During my time there, I discovered my talent for yodeling, which I attribute to my Bavarian roots. In order to give my career more stability, I began teaching piano and vocal lessons. My cover of "He Taught Me How To Yodel" became popular on YouTube, leading to invitations to appear on German TV shows such as "taff" (Pro7), "Punkt 12" (RTL), and "Hallo Deutschland" (ZDF).

I was soon known as the "Bavarian Yodeler in Hollywood" and met many other German musicians in LA, which eventually led to my involvement in the local Oktoberfest scene. I have played at numerous Oktoberfest events, yodeled on national television, and even founded my own all-women Polkaband called "Ladyhosen."

In the fall of 2021, I published my debut novel, "The One I Love Most," which is loosely based on my own life experiences. I translated the book into German in 2022.

Since moving to Los Angeles, I have adopted a vegan lifestyle and welcomed my pets Baloo, Billie, and Barley into my life. Currently, I enjoy teaching piano and voice lessons, writing songs, and yodeling around town. Be sure to check out my projects and services pages to learn more about what I'm up to.
