Hailing from the beautiful town of Warstein, Germany, Evita started playing piano age 5 and was, by the age of 13, the informal rehearsal accompanist at the local music school's musical theatre workshop. At age 16, she became an organist at her hometown's church.
As fate would have it, after graduating with a Masters Degree in American Studies from prestigious Bonn University in Germany, Evita moved to Los Angeles in 2005, where she embarked on a Hollywood career -- as a subtitle editor. In this capacity, she helped make English dialog understandable around the world, working on hundreds of films including Oscar and Emmy-winning titles and video game translations, and later as a tester for the subtitling software itself -- all while excelling in programming classes at Santa Monica College, and publishing "Siremic B", a programmable MIDI-over-WiFi control surface solution for the iPad.
Never quite losing sight of her original goal of composing music, in 2015 Evita decided to enroll in UCLA Extension's Film Scoring program. Since graduating a year later, she has interned for A-list composers Henry Jackman and Hans Zimmer, brought several short films to life with her music and orchestrated cues recorded with some of Hollywood's top session musicians. In addition, she currently serves as a board member for the American Society of Music Arrangers and Composers (ASMAC). Evita lives in Santa Monica.
