Design has the power to create joy and improve everyday experiences. Through a positive attitude, attention to detail and passion for collaboration and learning, I design successful communications that solve problems and connect people with the world around them.

When I'm not designing, you can find me biking around town, Instagramming my cat or volunteering with AIGA.

"Maria is reliable, dedicated, eternally upbeat and passionate about the art and craft of design. She also is someone who genuinely looks for a challenge and brings her abilities to bear as she produces well thought out, extremely well produced work. Her ability to present her work and foster a relationship with our clients inspired their confidence and an impressive amount of praise. 


Organized and positive, Maria tackled new technology and situations with enthusiasm and confidence. She always accepted constructive criticism gracefully and grew leaps and bounds in the time she spent at Mithun. 


I can say, without any reservation, that she exceeded every expectation I had for her and I believe she will excel in any opportunity she has going forward. She has my highest recommendation."


-Dale Ksionzyk, Associate Creative Director at McCann Worldgroup/Mithun


"Maria was an integral part of our team at Mithun, supporting one of the biggest food content web sites in the world - Pillsbury.com. Shortly before she left the agency, she earned a new leadership role, driving the redesign of the Latina-targeted QueRicaVida.com, which she did wonderfully. 


In her nearly two years at the agency, she rapidly grew into one of our biggest rock stars – the person all of our clients wanted on their business and who everyone on our team looked to for fantastic work. Whether it was whipping out a new campaign hero image design or presenting site redesign concepts to her clients, Maria nailed it every time. 


She’s a great designer who approaches creative solutions with the perfect blend of consumer empathy and business strategy. On top of all that, she’s just a genuinely nice person, respected and well-liked by everyone on our team. I hated to see her leave us (to relocate with her spouse), but know she’ll be a huge success wherever she lands."


-Shane Robbins VP, Group Account Director at McCann Worldgroup/Mithun


"I worked with Maria for over a year in a small agency setting. Her high level of maturity, strong sense of responsibility and dedicated work ethic impressed me immediately. Maria tackled project after project and it was obvious her design talent, creative direction and ability to self-teach new and necessary skills were components to her success. Her desire to tackle tasks outside her immediate skill set (and succeed in doing so) was inspiring. She is a creative, innovative and hardworking individual and it was an honor to work with her."
