My name is Maya Oren. I am a filmmaker, creative mind, and food-obsessed. I am self-taught and a self-starter, and often prefer to find solutions through unconventional measures. Gifted a Pentax film camera at age 11, I have spent years accumulating pieces of what makes this life wonderful. MOJALVO began as a way for me to become more intimately acquainted with aspects of life that interest me. I grew up, and was dropped into the crazy world that is creative branding in NYC. This taught me [quickly] how to deal with every personality, and also gave me the gift of a sharp eye for curation, with a knowledge of how to tell a compelling visual story. From farmers and the food they provide for our nation, small business owners with incredible profiles-- even to families' milestone events, I strive to create beautiful pieces about the things I find fascinating.
