Here are a few additional facts about me that go beyond my front page introduction:

  • I am nonbinary, which means I do not identify as male or female. Please use they/them pronouns when referring to me. I also go by Mar instead of my legal name, Maria (but you may still see Maria up some places).

  • I hail from the very small and surprisingly existent state of Delaware.

  • I love wordplay. Double-meanings, punny jokes, freestyle rap… pick your poison. Honestly I wouldn’t mind doing silly nomenclature for a living.

  • I am, at present, a terrible cook, but I am striving to get better.

  • I used to have a village of stuffed animals that lived in hats when I was a kid. They were always fighting with one another. It was maddening.
