Hola, my name is Maria Mora, but the homies call me Mars. I'm a New Jersey native, but I’ve also spent some time living in sunny Florida as a teen. The North called me back and Brooklyn became home for a bit — I am now a resident of the PNW, Portland, OR to be exact.

Growing up, writing was something I always found joy and solace in. Now as an adult, I found a way to turn my passion into purpose.

I aim to tell rich stories that are rooted in proper representation and the excellence of Black and Brown communities, whether that’s through a 1500 word article or a :15s spot. I am *all* about intentional and purposeful storytelling, as that is my goal. I’m inspired by many things that ultimately help me create rich work—from people watching and random 2AM conversations to Quentin Tarantino films, National Geographic, cooking and abstract art.

I am currently a writer for the greatest basketball player of all time, at the Jordan Brand Global Creative Studio. Let's get in touch.
