In keeping with this motto, I follow my second passion and play drums and trombone in a band. I can do so every evening after a recording day at our studios. At the age of nine I was already playing the drums in my school band. For me music is an autonomous language, that can take a leading role, especially film music. As a logical step I studied Audio Engineering directly after finishing high school. In my rare leisure time I put my creativity into the production of electronic music.
Inspired by the witty lines of the two lead characters, I knew I definitely wanted to work in the dubbing industry.
Due to my bilingual high school degree and the studies of German philology, I have developed a good sense of the intricacies of the german and english language. I grew up in Gera, a small industrial town in former East Germany. Like most families, we secretly watched Western television—my first encounter with the entertainment industry. After the fall of the Berlin wall, I left veterinary medicine to move into the media industry. As a child, I enjoyed watching my father editing films.
In those days, it was a laborious job.
I was motivated to obtain my accreditation in film editing. The main focus of my work here at SPEEECH is the editing, localization and adaptation of the film material utilized in the dubbing process. Growing up in South Africa, sound and math always seemed magical to me. Both follow logical structures. Quite the opposite! At the age of seven I saved every rand for audio software and started mixing the music at various school concerts.

After my additional studies of production management, German and English, I discovered the subtitling of feature films and series to be a new, exciting playground. Although the atmosphere at SPEEECH is informal and cheerful, our shared objective is to have a consistently professional attitude and bring all of our creativity to bear. Some of our team have been working together for many years, some are brand new.
