Born and raised in San Francisco, Maya has been involved in a passionate love affair with theatre since she first laid her little eyes on it. She dreamed of moving to New York and is now finishing up her final semester at Manhattan School of Music where she is receiving her Bachelors of Music in Musical Theatre (yay!) She is so grateful to have studied among peers she cares for and admires deeply, and with faculty that have graciously guided and shaped her into the kind of artist and human she always hoped to be. She intends to perform and create theatre all her life, with the hopes of using the art form to make people feel seen and cared for, to better understand herself and the world, and to cultivate compassion in the communities she is a part of.
Outside of theatre, Maya likes to get overly competitive while playing board games, to start a thousand projects with full intentions of finishing them, and to make her friends laugh.
