Maria is a graphic designer when not at the studio, although most of her clients tend to be yogis and yoga studios, so she's still there a lot! She also is crazy about her pack of Italian Greyhounds, Coco, Chloe and Ginger. She loves hiking in the mountains, playing piano, learning languages and having coffee with her friends.
Maria believes the world can be a better place through quality language, thus her passion for sanskrit, good grammar and creative writing.
