This blog is just an effort for me to not forget anything.
My name is Mayka Mei
I’m from around the Bay
I watch cartoons all day
I’m a thirtysomething living in Los Angeles. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, and no, I don’t hate LA.
By day I work in production and marketing at “The Mouse House” – a really weird jump from hosting frat parties, which I did when launching social media apps. Before working in the mobile space, I was tweeting for bands and designers and chefs, and before that I was the woman with MPD handling all the social media for the indie fashion etailer, Moxsie. (If you were one of @moxsie’s original first 168,000 followers participating in #buyerchat, yes, I judged you by your typos.)
I’ve been writing in blogs since 2001. You may have chanced upon this iteration because of a byline sighting elsewhere. Possibly: xo Jane, Nerds of Color, Mahfia, Clever Girls Collective, NBC’s The Feast, The San Francisco Bay Guardian, Groove Effect, That Minority Thing, or CBS’ Eye On Blogs.
My free time is spent reading physical books on planes, inducing myself into carb-riddled food comas, and punching in class cards at dance studios. (And, unabashedly, being in love with my partnerhusbandlove: Bill Robinson of Flimflammery.)
I discuss a lot of random things on The Maykazine. They range in seriousness, but I don’t take life too seriously. My irreverence may best be represented by statements like “Ginny Weasley is a whore,” in which case, don’t get your panties all up in a bunch.
