Maria was born and raised in the capital of Nuuk, and from a young age she's had a tender heart for the monsters to be found in Greenlandic mythology, as well as movies and books. 

She graduated with a BAC in 3D Computer Graphics Design from The Animation Workshop in 2012, and worked in the VFX-industry until 2017, when she moved back to Greenland to pursue her dream of hunting Greenlandic mythological monsters. She founded Glaciem House, and has written two books about the mythical creatures.
