Maura Chanz


Raised between the flashing lights of Los Angeles and the urbane rhythms of Chicago, I have an undying love for culture, storytelling, and technology. I seek to deliver the voice of multi-cultural brands through creative partnerships, digital landscapes, and social channels.

I began my career at the age of thirteen as a professional actress. It was during this time that I further developed my love for and understanding of storytelling. I cherish the lessons learned in those early days and have since held positions as a marketing intern for Viacom Media Industries-BET, a media intern for both Bronze Lens Film Festival and the Black Women’s Film Network, and later serving as a creative intern for True Story Agency where I brainstormed and assisted in content development for major brands.

I am passionate about equal rights, diversity, and inclusion and am committed to civic engagement, serving as a BET What's At Stake ambassador and correspondent, mentor for the Greater Atlanta cohort of GirlScouts of America, and a member of the entertainment committee for Atlanta based non-profit Amplify4Good. Driven by the women who have led before me, I ultimately aspire to inspire young women to live unapologetic and reach their full potential.
