An artist and class clown from a young age, Mia’s introduction to dark humor came in the form of wacky-package trading cards and stickers. She’d later attend the prestigious Art & Design High School in Manhattan. Within weeks of graduating A&D Mia was designing Disney graphics for merchandise sold at Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s. Throughout her college years, Mia would continue to juggle freelance design work along with her studies.
In her junior year Mia was awarded a scholarship to study in Florence, Italy. It was an experience she would later describe as “Indescribably Fantastico!”. After earning her BFA in advertising/ graphic design with Latin honors, Mia worked as a marketing creative in Manhattan before relocating to Los Angeles for post-graduate studies in Media at UCLA. After graduating UCLA, she’d go on to lend her creative and production skills to top Hollywood studios and media giants such as ABC, Amazon Studios, CBS, Disney (again), Fox, MGM, Miramax, Netflix, Paramount, Universal, and Warner Brothers, just to name a few.
What you find here is Mia’s own voice and creative expression. Her powerful storytelling, including scalariously cringeworthy tales of growing up in Queens NYC during the seventies and eighties, are starting to gain a following. Pee & Circumstance and other short stories were selected for off-Broadway theater readings.

My goal is social commentary as a mode of reflection on modern life, as opposed to blind acceptance. When you chip in, there’s a place to share your thoughts.
