During her studies at the University of Music, Drama and Media in Hanover (Germany) she was taught especially by Prof. Frank Löhr in Conducting, Prof. Ewa Kupiec in classical piano and Prof. Tino Derado in jazz piano.
At the beginning of her studies she met the film composer Randall Meyers (Sophie’s World) and became his assistant. Since 2014 she is working as a free film composer beside the most talented filmmakers like Hollywood Producer/Cameraman Peter Zeitlinger. Moreover she met and learned from amazing people like James Newton Howard (“The Hunger Games”), Patrick Doyle (Henry V), Alexandre Desplat (“Grand Budapest Hotel”), Danny Elfman (“Edward with the scissorhands”) and Agent Laura Engel.
In 2017 she started her own recording studio “Donelly Records” and already produced some musical songs like “Gentleman Prince”. Like her idole Aan Menken (BMI New York) she is now a member of BML London.
