Designer & Planner

Maria’s a generalist. She works on projects as a designer and planner, but she also works with clients and colleagues to help them write reports, communications, and anything else word-based. A degree in English and architecture comes in handy. Maria loves the variety of work and how her liberal arts education and architectural one influence each other. She also loves how the two areas can help clients in their planning and design projects. Some people understand pictures. Some people understand words. Maria tries to bridge the gap for both.


Maria is a hobby enthusiast. One of her hobbies is continuing education — in whatever sparks her interest. She recently took a course in entomology and is now considering one in water resources, which may seem unrelated but for the fact that she fly fishes. Bugs. Water. Fish. When she’s not at 292, she’s casting for trout, or tying flies, or volunteering with Trout Unlimited, or reading (another hobby) about trout.
