My name is Maria and I’m a creative leader, beauty junkie and design rockstar with a passion for fashion, aesthetics and vintage rock and roll. I’m currently the director of marketing and product development at Cosmetica Labs in Toronto, where I co-create the future of beauty with the world’s most notable indie and heritage brands.


For the last 14 years, I’ve worked as a brand strategist and creative director, as well as a visual consultant for fashion and beauty companies, guiding them through market & trend research, concept,  design & marketing.  Back in 2015, I co-founded and directed a boutique design studio, La Reina (a.k.a. The Queen), where I guided cross-disciplinary  teams of creative professionals in projects for the beauty, fashion, and luxury industries.
