About Me


Ellen was born in the extreme northeast of Brazil but grew up in Florianopolis (or Floripa), south of Brazil, and is from Jewish origins on her mother's side, whom was married to a military and entrepreneur. She started playing the piano by the age of 6 to attend her mother's wish. Her first time in a recording studio happened when she was also 6, for a gospel album. Her father was the producer.

After that she has been always engaged with music, was part of church choirs, participated at different talent contests and joined the talent groups of primary and high school. Joined both the choirs for the orchestras of her city and the State of Santa Catarina and started traveling and performing at different regions of Brazil. Because of that she could receive professional assistence and training from professionals and important names in the community of musicians from which she later was to be part of.

At 17 years old she finalized her studies at the Conservatory of Music of Florianopolis achieving high levels as a technical classical pianist and then entered the University of the State of Santa Catarina to become a Piano Bachelor, but in between her studies she found out with the help of her teachers she should follow the path of singing.

She had already started her studies in vocal and harmony technique in popular and classical music, from jazz to gospel since 1998 from different masters. Has participated as soloist or integrant part of the choir for different pieces of recreations of musicals such as Annie, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, A Chorus Line, Hair, Mama Mia!, Les Miserables, The Phanthom of the Opera, Rent, Miss Saigon, Cats, Moulin Rouge, Grease, Chicago, Sweet Charity, Cabaret, Aida as well as classical concerts like The Opera do Malandro - a Tribute to Tom Jobim, Beethoven Symphony n. 9, Mozart's Requiem, The Magic Flute and Rigolleto.

She started her dance training by the age of 15, with dance background from classical ballet, jazz, lyrical jazz, funky jazz, hip hop, ballroom and latin american dance, contemporary, aerial arts and of course all afro-brazilian popular dances that are very strong in her own country.

Her passion for music was always present, her parents used to play Beethoven and Mozart's vinils for the family time spent together, her father and sister both play various musical instruments and her mother was also a professional singer. During the 2 and a half years she attended Music University, besides her major which was Piano Instrument, she also attended classes such as Harmony, Rhythms and Music Theory, Music History, Music Perception, Systems and Musical Equipments, Foundation of Musical Language, Basis of Anatomy and Physiology of Movement, Vocal Groups, Music Editing, Studio Practices, Electro-acustic.

She left Brazil with the Brazilian Ballet Dance Company to Shanghai, first as a singer and then became part of the ballet. She was based in Shanghai for 2 years while touring around China and then was transfered to Hong Kong where she has been based until today.

Currently working as a model, dancer,singer, and actress she keeps traveling around Asia and Europe, and lately, after been discovered by an agent and receiving professional DJ training, she felt the urge to pursue the career as a DJ and has already performed and been resident at renowned clubs, and has also performed for private parties.

She has finally put together her talents to perform for different production companies and dance companies as well as for her own partnering productions.
