*Maya started exploring the fledgling world of electronic music in the late 90’s in Tel Aviv, Israel. She explored the early rave scenes, the house music and mega club explosion that was happening in TLV and also started going to outdoor parties in the deserts and forests of the Holy Land.
*It was after her move to Vancouver, Canada that she really engaged with the Psychedelic Trance community after experimenting with the local rave scene. Her regular night out during school was Friday night at the legendary Organix trance night at 23 water street club.
*She first went to Burning Man in 2001 and has been going ever since – engrossing herself with the community on and off playa. She’s ran theme camps, created installations, made movies on and off the playa and has been an active participant in the local SF community. One of her community highlights was interviewing Harley Dubois – one of the BM founders – for her youtube channel WorldWideGoodNews in 2010.
*In the Bay Area and California she has also frequented small to large outdoor parties and festivals, including: Gemini, Pulse, Symbiosis, Moontribe and most street festivals in SF.
*She is extremely passionate to see the evolution of the Electronic Music and Transformational culture into a thriving community and humanity.
