About

I am a Bay Area-based motion designer, 2D animator, an aspiring illustrator, and a mother of two girls. I love visual storytelling, beautiful design, and am obsessed with learning new skills. 
A long, long time ago I started working at ad agencies as a digital art director, where I was introduced to Flash and fell in love with animation. Myriads of online ads later, I’ve completely transitioned to After Effects where I spend most of my days now, creating explainer videos, animated social media posts, and educational materials. 
I am always looking for interesting projects. So if you like my work and would like to chat, shoot me an email at maria@urbanabsurd.com.
Thank you!
