Born and raised in New Jersey, Maggi grew up
pretending to be a Power Ranger while roller skating to
Mariah Carey's album "Butterfly." Suburbia is weird,
and so has her adulthood been, thus far.
After her parents split up, no one stuck around in
New Jersey. Mom packed the kids and the dogs and
headed West for Southern California, and Dad went to
Minneapolis. Maggi finished high school in Orange
County, CA and then went back to the East Coast to
study musical theater at the American Musical
and Dramatic Academy in New York City.
Dancing is not a skill that Maggi posesses, so she
continued her studies at The Academy of Radio
Broadcasting in Huntington Beach, CA, where she learned
to say lots of ridiculous things that made people laugh!
Turns out she was pretty good at saying ridiculous things
that and followed her career as an on air talent all over
the country including Green Bay, WI, La Crosse, WI, Seattle, WA, Phoenix, AZ, Temecula, CA, and Champaign, IL.
She has used her powers of radio awesomeness to help many organizations including Step Up, empowering girls to finish high school and attend college as well as her favorite, Special Olympics, of which she still donates time and money.
Maggi still works in the radio world as a producer for Mark Wallengren during afternoons on KOST 103.5, is on air every weekend on Star 102.1 in Dallas, and teaches lectures at The Academy of Radio Broadcasting. She also hosts the nationally recognized "YTunes Shuffle" podcast where she, along with cohost David Earl Waterman (Hollywood's Secret Weapon), interviews comedians/content creators about the music that inspires their lives.
She spends most of her time working in her home studio as a voice artist creating more unique and interesting characters, then working the streets as a stand up comedian; already gracing the stages of venues such as The Comedy Store, The Irvine Improv and Flappers Main Stage. She also produces a weekly open mic (The Challenge Mic).
Maggi loves to hear her own voice but recognizes the importance of using it for justice. She speaks on topics such as sexual assault, gender inequality and the bizareness of the internet. Humorous, smart, and incredibly sweet, Maggi always encourages you to share your stories of strength. She may have a lot to say, but she is ready to connect with you to create, create, create!
