MARIA F. LEÓN
Telling stories and making things happen
I've worked in film & video production for over twelve years. If you ask folks about me, they might say I make things happen.
I'm a content creator with experience working on studio features, running tv series, producing commercials and directing independent movies. When I'm not on set, I hang with the fam and take classes through Harvard Extension School to ear a masters degree in Creative Writing.
I believe in the importance of diversity in all aspects of life and strive to bring inclusion into content creation. My goal is to be a better storyteller every day.
