  • Personal Profileopen


    Maris is not a native Texan, but she got here as fast as she could! She spent most of her childhood in the small town of Fairview, TX and is now very excited to call Austin home. When she’s not exploring her new city’s robust food and music scene, she can usually be found hiking with her best four-legged friends, J.D. and Austin, exploring in the Texas Hill Country, or visiting family and friends in North Texas and Oklahoma.
