““Unforgettable moments are islands in the ocean of life”
I love music, sports and meeting new people and in my opinion there is no better place than a circus for all that The Zip Zap circus school gives me the chance to combine one of my biggest dreams with the possibility to take part in a social project. Hopefully I can assist the Zip Zap family with my passion and spend an awesome time with awesome people!
Fire Poi & Hula Hoop
“When a toy becomes a passion. When time stops and space becomes endless”
I started to spin fire poi in form of streetart in different countries. I improved my poi and hooping skills at various conventions and workshops in Europe. I have been working with street kids in different Latin American countries and was working at a children's home in Switzerland the last 1.5 years as a social pedagogue. I love to be part of the circus, teach, learn, train and evolve.

“A day without a smile is a wasted day”
When I got my master degree in Clinical and Social Psychology and ended my internship up, I decided to move to Berlin for a year of European Volunteer Service in Cabuwazi Zirkus (youth circus). I stayed there for another one and half year doing circus with and for refugee kids and their families; studying and volunteering for Circus Sonnenstich (ZBK) with down-syndrom kids, teenagers and adults; for kids with various disabilities. During this time i took part to several international exchanges around Europe to improve my skills as a circus trainer. In 2016-2017 I attended the further circus pedagogy education in Ecole De Cirque de Bruxelles. October-November 2017 I’ve been with my partner David in Turkey working with local and refugee kids, and giving circus pedagogy education to future trainers. In December 2017-January 2018 I took part to a Clown Without Borders’ project called “La Caravane des Reves” aiming the inclusion between Belgian and refugee kids and teenagers.
