Hi, I'm Daria!
I am a content and creative writer, web designer, and wanderer with an energetic mind and a curious heart.
Originally from Hamburg, Germany, I made the road my home after finishing my bachelor's degree in Cultural Studies in 2016. Currently based in Italy, I do what I like best. From travel, culture and creative writing to designing websites: I create and work with new ideas. My fiction has been awarded third prize in the Daniil Pashkoff Prize and second prize in the James Johnson Award. It has appeared in The Vehicle and the anthology Cat Eye Canasta. I also write a personal blog, Contented Imperfection.
Feel free to get in touch!
Why work with me?
Over the years, I've come to think of myself as a growing mosaic. I collect its pieces rigorously. All the seemingly insignificant moments, stored on the shelves of my memory: smells in dusty conservation jars, questions and answers on paper that’s turned yellow on the crumbling edges, pictures and film sequences capturing faces, expressions, or the way people walk and carry themselves, little hand-carved, wooden boxes protecting the rawest, sharpest feelings of them all, love and heartbreak.
So far my search has led me to twenty-five countries on four continents, but my mosaic is still far from being complete. Some of the edges are rough. Like a rock that becomes smooth with the ocean's movement, they still need to be formed. They still need to clash with new ideas and experiences that are different from everything I've known so far.
Those are the moments my hearts yearns for. And I will gladly put myself out there, again and again, engaging in situations that broaden my own horizon and that of those around me.
You see, it is not hard to get me excited. I believe in people, ideas, and possibilities. Make me understand your project and I will most likely fall for it as much as you. In return, I'll offer you a powerful cocktail of creativity mixed with languages, vision, a dash of perfectionism, and an extra portion of ambition.
You know where you want to be - I know how to get there
Let's work together!
You care about your project – it's time to let the world know why everybody else should, too!
Whether you already have a specific idea or a general question about what I do and how I can help you: Feel free to get in touch. I can't wait to meet you!
