My name is Maria and I was born and raised in San Francisco and decided to move south, to San Jose, where the weather is warmer.

I was accepted in San Jose State’s BFA Graphic Design program in 2005 and it was one of the best educational and life experiences I’ve ever had in my life. I met people that I’m still friends with today, gained confidence, and finally had a chance to focus on doing work I really enjoyed. I also earned a minor in photography.

Today I have two little girls, Zoe and Evia, and one husband, Jon. They are my world.

Some things I Love: 

I love basketball 🏀, specifically the Warriors, 

I love Zelda 🗡 I was obsessed as a kid and it still gives me warm fuzzy feelings when I think of it

I love reading 📖, mainly novels and memoirs, I loved the Harry Potter books.

I love cooking shows 🍳 , even though I don’t like cooking, Ha.

I love traveling 🧳, even though I don’t do it as much as I’d like.

I love binge watching TV shows 📺. Currently (GOT, Outlander, The Handmaid's Tale, The Act)
