She founded a theater company in Berlin and has spent the last decade developing cross-disciplinary works for the stage that combine music, dance, and highly emotional theater. Her plays have been performed in New York, Chicago, Berlin, and Oslo.As a technologist, she has worked as a software engineer and product manager, and is now a freelance consultant.
