Hi, I’m Maria!
I am a Los Angeles-based concept & show set designer working in the themed entertainment industry.
My passions include design, immersive storytelling, interdisciplinary collaboration, and soft pretzels. Theme parks are a natural fit for me!
I hold an MFA in Themed Entertainment Design from Savannah College of Art and Design, the first program of its kind in the country. While attending SCAD, I completed an internship at Universal Creative and was chosen to work on three different projects for Universal Parks & Resorts in the US and abroad. After returning to SCAD in 2018, my team finished First Place at Walt Disney Imagineering’s Imaginations Design Competition. This led me to my current internship at Walt Disney Imagineering, where I am helping bring to life an exciting new attraction for Tokyo DisneySea.
