about me

profile photo Maya Richman is an cis white queer californian living in berlin, searching eternally for someone to make silly music with. When she’s not singing karaoke, she can be found facilitating workshops on well-being and technology for social justice and human rights organisations around the world. She has sang and performed experimental electro-acoustic sets in in Montreal and Berlin, hosted feminist community radio program XXFiles on local Montreal station CKUT.fm and led workshops on holistic security and collective care at Mozilla Festival, Internet Freedom Festival and Radical Networks. A former Mozilla Fellow, she worked with Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice to support internal sustainability processes, and supported research on surveillance capitalism and resilience of LBQT activists in the US. She dabbles in zine-making, watercolor painting and is currently in training to be a trauma-informed somatic practitioner using the Pantarei Approach. Maya loves to amp up a crowd, whether to get them working together to tackle climate justice or to sing their heart out on stage.
