When she's not creating new images or planning her next trip (travel photography is her everything), Marisa is picking up new skills and dabbling in passion projects related to a lifelong love of graphic and interior design, book arts, typography, and hand-lettering. But more likely, she's wordsmithing something.


Marisa has been a content and editorial professional in the San Francisco Bay Area tech sector for more than a decade. When it comes to working with words, Marisa is always excited to devote her passion and expertise to those companies, projects, or personal initiatives that help make the world a better place, and life a joy. And while she enjoys flying solo, partnering with cross-functional teams — large and small, local and remote — is where she shines.
