Hi, I am Maria.
For as long as I can remember, I have been in a never-ending pursuit to use intelligence and analysis to understand the world. My perseverance in trying to sort out truth from illusion got me a philosophy degree in my late 20s (in the last 4 years, I’ve been working and studying 200%, don’t ask me how).
Before my recent academic adventure, I was a Hyper Island student in digital business, coupled with taking a bunch of online courses in the intersecting fields. Things became easier after I accepted that I am just addicted to knowledge and stopped attempting to pigeonhole myself. Since then, my love of learning shows me the way.
I love teaching and guiding.
My goal is to make my clients feel smarter, more informed and in control. Sometimes I manage to do it with social grace, other times not. Luckily, my bluntness in expressing opinions and omnipresent critical examination are typically forgiven, if not appreciated.
If there is one thing I can claim that I’m an expert in, it is learning new things, putting them into a context and transferring this knowledge to others effectively. I believe that creativity is driven by the cross-pollination of ideas, perspectives and thoughts from seemingly disparate areas of life. I always look for patterns, concepts and new perspectives.
Currently, I am based in Stockholm, Sweden, and most of my clients are located in Northern Europe.
