hi hello hey
konNichiwa whats up
I’m Mariya Munsey - the Y is there because I’m half Japanese.
Think of the song Maria by Santana or the one from Sound of Music if you have a hard time figuring out how to say my name. I promise, it will help. No need to sing it to me out loud though.
I’m an Art Director, photographer, and a retired semi-pro dog walker. I was born in Tokyo, raised mainly in Seattle but now I’m living in Los Angeles. I graduated from ArtCenter College of Design with a degree in Advertising and then went to straight to work at HUSTLE. Now, I work at R/GA LA as an Art Director.
I think my love for creative work started when I won a fashion competition at age 5 while visiting Japan. They told me I won because I ‘creatively stayed in the lines’ and apparently I had given them a design they had never seen before. Now, I kind of have a career of kinda doing the same thing.
Find me where the dogs, beer (or coffee), friends, and shenangians are or at the contact information below.
