French, Algerian and Polish (yeah, it happens) multimedia journalist, currently based in Paris. I have graduated from Sciences Po Paris (France) with a Master of Journalism and a Bachelor in Political Science. I've studied law as well, and am passionate about international affairs. I also fancy, in no particular order : economy, energy, religion, science, technology, drama, Marseille's football team, politics, cybersecurity, animal rights, German industrial metal bands, counter-terrorism, beer, philosophy and regional languages. I'm currently working for D8, BFMTV, France 24 (English), TF1, and a bunch of other companies. My work has also appeared on BBC World News, Bloomberg, France 2, France 5, ARTE, AJ+ (Al Jazeera), Slate, RTL, Radio France, Streetpress ... I write articles, produce/shoot TV stories and documentaries, and create multimedia projects for various media outlets.

    Maya-Anaïs worked on a quick deadline project for HuffPost in late March after the attack in Brussels. She was able to quickly get us reactions on the ground in Paris at a vigil for the Brussels victims, including full french to english translations. Her work was high quality, professional, and quick -- just fantastic to work with. Thank you!
