At the age of 14, Maria Guadalupe knew she wanted to become an Audio Engineer. Playing violin and singing in her school Mariachi Band introduced her to the world of sound and its possibilities. In 2001, she attended Full Sail University and received her Associates in Recording Arts. After graduation, Maria began working at Urbana Recording Studios in Houston, Texas which is owned by Tejano Legends, La Mafia. Just three years after graduation, she became the first female Recording/Mixing Engineer to win a Latin GRAMMY award. With three Latin GRAMMY's under her belt, Maria decided to expand her knowledge and go back to Full Sail University to receive her Bachelors in Audio Production, with intent to graduate May of 2018.
Working with bands in the studio, Maria has also worked on their music videos as a Video Editor.
Maria is relentless in the pursuit of her dream of winning an Academy Award for sound. Perhaps that dream will happen with you.
