about me

 Hi. My name is Maya and I love books, languages, illustrations, summer and drinking great coffee. At the moment I am living in Barcelona with my husband and our four year old son and cannot imagine moving away ever again.


I studied English and Spanish Literary Studies (BA) as well as Italian and Catalan Linguistics (MA) at the universities of Marburg and Leipzig and, in 2019, I finally handed in my dissertation on Adolescent Group Dynamics  in anglophone Novels of the 20th Century.


In the last few years, I wrote copies, translated, and illustrated for clients such as editorials (Ploettner Verlag, Frieda & Luzie) and fashion brands (Desigual), translation and subtitling agencies (audioprojects), detective agencies (Detektei KurtzAaden Detektei)  authors (Owen Jones and Amanda Mariel) and many private clients.  


If you want to know more, explore my page or send me a message via the contact page. I'm looking forward to your project.
