I was born in Germany and grew up in Costa Rica and Berlin.

For the past four years, I have been teaching German as a second language and working as a freelance translator in English, Spanish and German in Costa Rica, mostly academic work but also other projects like artists’ catalogs (Elia Arce, Valentina Murabito) and a documentary (Lifting the green Screen).
