María Azellea

María Azellea, Team Member

Charter Member & Team Member

María Azellea at a young age realized there was a need to help diverse, new, and outdated companies who strived to be part of the social media shift in the new multimedia marketing world. From that need she established Menacing Marketing in 2013 with the focus of empowering the voices of these businesses. Her belief in empowering the Next Generation brought her to work with several Non Profits & Organizations. Together they build great platforms, media content and strong membership participation.

In addition to her volunteer positions Maria Azellea created and is the owner of Hustle - N - Heart, a non profit virtual landing page that is a way to bring resources & information to aspiring professionals so they can have their own starting line as they begin their professional journeys. As an animator her philosophy is "To create new, innovative, and diverse media that empowers the next generation of creatives to tell their own stories.". This passion and drive led to her short film "La Concha Mágica" to debut at San Diego Comic Con Children’s Film Festival. Which is a step in her continued journey to bring to life new stories every day.
