1987 – While studying Politics and Sociology, I start working as a piano accompanier in the Kleinkunstszene of Hamburg. I accompany Monty Arnold, Annette Mayer, Lilli Walzer, Nana Gualdi, Joe Luga, Anneliese Braasch, Gisela Krebs, Renate Howe, Gerd Samariter, Circe, Henry Schönewald and Ilse Werner; soon I know all the chansons by Holländer, Brecht, Kreisler and Tucholsky by heart.
