About me

Itching for new challenges and opportunities, because I always want to do more and better. And now, the most awkward thing I ever wrote: a brief bio. Maria (b. 1990) is on her second incarnation in advertising, she's a creative now. Previously, she studied Psychology on Woody Allen's advice. In his opinion, that's the way to becoming a writer. He's a published author and knows a thing or two about shrinks, so we'll take his word for it. Back to Maria, she was born and is still being raised in Lisbon. She's also the proud owner of 50+ tubes of lipstick and a chocolate addiction. She enjoys a good (pop) culture reference and those in the know say she's more interesting in person.
