Screen Shot 2014-07-07 at 11.47.02 AM

Maria, Maria (cueing Carlos Santana) our design and production intern, and photoshop extraordinaire. This little babe hails from Costa Rica, and there’s nothing more evident of this than when she’s watching the FIFA world cup game. 

Suddenly, Maria turns into ‘Tita,’ and this outgoing but “I’m going home” at 9:30pm girl is slinging back beers and taking swigs from random fish bowls, and the words coming out of her sweet mouth are enough to make even the sailor-est of sailors blush. Naturally, that’s what we love about her. Her good vibes and general excitement are contagious. Not to mention her story telling skills are second to none, especially when she’s impersonating her mom. She loves yogurt for any meal of the day, however she ironically forgot that minor detail and listed something she’s “not sure counts as food.” Don’t worry girl, I get you.
