About Me

I was born in Andorra in 1998 and moved as a 14 y/o to Germany with my family. I learned many languages (German, Spanish, French, English and Catalan) from an early age on and have always been passionate about literature. I currently work as a chess journalist and writer. I also train daily to become the best chess player I can become. You can find out more about me and my work on my blog or social media channels.


As an international chess journalist, I interview famous chess players and write articles for various chess platforms. I work regularly for sites like ChessBase, the blog on schachliebe.de and others. I also translate articles and texts on request.


I published my first poetry book —a trilingual poetry collection— on Amazon in 2020. Several of my poems have also been published in various anthologies and magazines. I’m currently working on my first novel.

Chess Player

The world made of 64 squares is particularly fascinating to me. I became Women’s World Champion among the Disabled in November 2021, after already celebrating some smaller national successes.
