About Me.

I grew up in Rockville, Maryland – a suburb in the Washington DC metro area. My affinity for art and business drove me to pursue advertising at the University of Georgia. I graduated from The University of Georgia with a Bachelors of Art in Advertising from Grady College of Mass Communication and Journalism. I also received a minor in Design and Media and a certificate in New Media and Design. I am currently pursuing a Masters in Emerging Media through the New Media Institute at the University of Georgia. The content of Maya’s portfolio and projects are of her own creation from her classes and free time. Maya currently lives in New York City where she works as an Art Director.
