Mariah grew up in Mt. Baldy, California and was the Valedictorian of her class at OTIS College of Art & Design in Los Angeles. After graduating, she went to work for an entertainment agency, whose clients included CBS, HBO and Food Network. She then switched gears and worked in fashion retailing for O’Neill Clothing and PacSun Stores, where she art directed and coordinated countless lifestyle photo shoots as well as created seasonal advertising campaigns and promotional materials.
Mariah moved to Portland, Oregon in 2013 to start Craft-o-Graph, a small but mighty design firm with clients ranging from large tech companies to influential lifestyle and fashion photographers. She edited, designed, and published a book in 2015: 'The rockwork of Daven Gray & The Gingerbread House that started it all', which documents her father’s 40 year career as a stone mason in Southern California. At Craft-o-Graph, Mariah takes the lead on all branding and large-scale creative production, and loves getting her hands dirty on hand-crafted packaging, promos, and print design projects.
