While other little girls were playing with Barbie dolls, I was designing fonts and print ads. Its true, I probably never quite fit in, but thats often how it is with creative types.


Ok, so that's not actually where it started. It began in San Francisco, where I was born. And I can probably credit a rather bohemian upbringing to help foster my creative spirit. But I'm not just a small town girl, I've lived in many other parts: Boston, Paris, Denmark, Scotland and Hawaii to name a few. These experiences have greatly influenced who I am today as a creative professional. 


I've done work in a broad range of industries and mediums during my 20+ year tenure as a creative. All different, but each has had something to teach and has enriched me as a professional. My career path has been relatively straightforward. Shortly after my acceptance as a chemistry major at USF, I realized that my passions were in creating visual design solutions rather than chemical ones. I then moved to Maryland to study visual communications and graphic design at MICA. After graduation, I went on to work at a small firm in Boston, primarily doing publication design and collateral for some boutique cycling companies. In the mid-90s I moved back to to the Bay Area just in time for the dot com boom and annual report heyday. I was fortunate enough to work with a couple of small studios doing high end, conceptual collateral (annual reports), and witnessed the boom first hand. As the economy grew, I decided to start a studio of my own, servicing emerging technology companies. Since then, I've done extensive branding work for tech startups and more established technology brands.

(It's a word, I promise.) I started two lifestyle brands in the mid to late 2000s. You can read more about the first one here, and my second endeavor here. They were amazing experiences, and I learned a lot about starting a business up first hand. I also learned that I want co-founders the next time. 


Travel has been in my blood since I was the womb, quite literally. My parents met working for United Airlines and rumor has it I was conceived somewhere in South America. A creative at heart, I am always working on something— whether it be in design, photography, or fashion. I'm also passionate about independent film and music, and health and fitness are simply a way of life for me.


I've moved my focus to Product Design/UX/UI, and am currently looking forward to joining a team (or co-founding), so I can focus on building great experiences and an epic brand from the inside out. Interested? Hit me up!

Maja has always been a pleasure to work with. She's consistently delivered outstanding design, and has always demonstrated a preoccupation for assuring the quality of the end-product. Her attentive, easy-going nature has also made her an ideal collaborator on complex projects with difficult deadlines. She's been a tremendous resource to our team for years now, and we always looking forward to the next time we can include her in projects.

Unlike many designers, Maja grasps the entire project, spanning the product management, overall vision, design as well contributing to the accompanying text. This is a rare combination of skills that leads to great results.
