Our Team Stories
Owner and Creative Director
Thinking that the user interfaces could be better, Maria’s first taste of design came from building fan websites of her favorite music artists when she was in high school just for fun. Self-teaching herself graphic editing and coding, Maria found herself falling in love with design and solving puzzles with code. She nurtured this love by formally studying these topics starting at the end of high school through graduate school. It’s rare to find Maria not absorbing something new each day.
While Maria has three degrees focused in Web Design, Graphic Communications, and a masters degree from the University of Michigan School of Information in Human-Computer Interaction, Maria credits much of her learning from life-changing mentorship throughout her education. She enjoys giving back as much as she can through teaching and various volunteer work.
With a passion for design, education, and entrepreneurship, Maria enjoys running a business that solves design problems, makes a positive impact, all while working in a way that is engaging, authentic, and purposeful.
