Hi, I’m Maria.
I’ve been a reporter, producer and editor for five-plus years, but I got into the business because my whole life, I’ve been a writer.
I started out writing about beer at a big metro daily, and then I moved into public media. Working to get people interested and involved in the issues of their communities became my life.
Currently I’m a reporter covering immigration and international news — mostly the intersection of culture and politics.
The through line of all my work is my interest in people. I hope my reporting can be educational — for me and for others — about the way people live and feel, and about the way reality is different depending on where (and how) you live.
I try to visit a new country every year and wander in the woods at least once a season. Hopefully in a year or two, I’ll be able to also call myself an author.
