She considers herself like a cosmopolitan with German roots. After living in Venezuelaand in the Dominican Republicshe moved to Spain. Since 2005 she lives on Mallorca with her older sister and her fifteen year old black cat, which is more than happy that she never has to set paw in another airplane again.
