Hi, I'm Maia.

I am a writer, sustainable food activist, yoga teacher, and dancer living in Chicago. I am passionate about using storytelling to help people treat our planet with more compassion.

My work has been featured in publications such as Cherry Bombe Magazine, Chickpea Magazine, and mindbodygreen, among others.

With a background in environmental science and journalism, I aim to make sustainable living and eating accessible to as many people as possible.

Do you have an impact-driven business, online platform, or publication? Let's collaborate!

Are you a human with a body? Let's practice yoga together!
