Who Am I?

Maria Mora, but the homies call me Mars. I'm a New Jersey native, but I also spent some time living in Florida. The north called me back, though. Growing up, writing was something I always found joy and solace in. Now as an adult, I figured out how to turn this into a career. I aim to tell rich stories that are rooted in BIPOC excellence and footwear culture. Music, streetwear, gender equality, and meditating are just a few of my favorite things.

I'm currently based in Brooklyn, where I work as a Copywriter at Laundry
Service. Let's work.

Fun Facts

Plantain is my favorite fruit.

I had a brain aneurysm when I was 8 yrs old and survived. WOO!

I won county/state-wide awards playing the clarinet.

I hung out with Raekwon once and we had a great conversation. (Ask me about it if you're curious)

I wanted to be an astronaut growing up, but then I realized math was a requirement. Not my forté.
