I am a freelance Writer and Translator living in London. I was born in Kassel, Germany and grew up bilingual in English and German. After finishing my A-levels with outstanding grades in English, German, French, Politics and Music, I studied English, German and Psychology at the University of Kassel. Alongside my studies I worked in a bookshop further deepening my knowledge about literature and the written word whilst reviewing new books and writing summaries and website content for the bookshop I worked at.
My passion for Music and Performing Arts brought me to then study Musical Theatre at both the University of Arts Berlin and the Royal Academy of Music in London. I graduated from both these Conservatoires with Distinction. Alongside my work on Stage in Germany, the UK and Austria, I have worked as a freelance translator and writer since 2010. My writing and editing experience began with writing book reviews and summaries and was then extended to first translate theatrical literature such as plays, musical theatre songs and poetry, content writing for the educational sector and general content writing and editing for travelling and fashion websites.
My international work as an actress and writer has also brought me to the Netherlands, where I became fluent in Dutch.
I am efficient, concise and exact in my work as a translator and writer. I work well under pressure and am always determined to go beyond what is expected. I listen carefully to the customer's needs and always deliver top quality results.
My variety in education and job experience is a huge plus as it constantly allows me new insights, gives me inspiration and keeps my work fresh. My unconventional background guarantees a fruitful, inspiring cooperation and will make the end result unique at a top standard. I look forward to working with you.
