About Me: 
Born and raised for 9 years in VA. Moved to NY when my dad changed jobs. I have been in love with music since birth... Or was it before... Can't remember. Ask my parents! They've told great stories of things I used to do pertaining to music. I am now a passionate singer and a striving-to-be-accomplished pianist and a cellist and guitarist in training. If you would like to know anything else about me, please feel free to ask! :)
Music (listening to it, playing it, and singing it), writing (lyrics, stories, and blogs), reading (anything really), sports (playing and watching), and making people laugh (and that includes everyone).
Favorite Bands: 
Ummm.... Well there's this amazing 10-man a Capella group.... I think they're called Straight No Chaser... :P Hehe! I also like The Dave Matthews Band, The Script, The Fray, Pentatonix, and Another Round.

Maria!! Hey, Haven't talked to you in a while. In all fairness, I haven't been on here in a while. Just thought I'd drop in and leave a comment. Surprise!! Hope you are doing well?!:)

Hey! I haven't been on in a looonngg time! Sorry! I'm not on twitter, just on the website, and of course email. Have you gone to any concerts this tour yet or planning on going? I just went Saturday night in Omaha and it was freaking spectacular! I'm excited for them to come back now, hopefully in the spring? I guess we'll see! What's your favorite on the new album?

Okay, so not to be weird or anything, but I saw you commenting on some other profiles and can't believe I found someone my age on this site! I haven't seen any others. And, to top it off, you love Ron Pope (who I LOVE and actually talked to) and The Fray (who I just saw!) We should become Chaser friends! :)

Maria, I had your profile open on my desktop forever - I wanted to comment on your profile, but I couldn't think of just the right thing to say! Then you stopped by & commented on mine! Isn't that kinda funny? :)

I am enjoying getting to know you though twitter! I think you are doing a great job with the fan-run twitter accounts. Keep it up! :)

So glad you like them! I have an two albums of just Mike and they're on Facebook! You are more than welcome to use any of the pics of him you like.
I will send you a friend request so you can access the photo albums. I think you should be able to use them from there.

Hi, Maria! Since I don't do Twitter or Facebook, can I just give you the answer to the trivia question here? It's 'Dreaming in Blue". Hope I wasn't too late with the answer!

Thanks, Maria!

I love your Facebook profile pic (not that the one on here isn't good, too). But I'm kinda partial to the FB one. :)

lol! I'm sure! Mike's just one of those people who takes your breath away. I know I would've felt the exact same way! :D

That was an awesome post on the Mike Love Thread! You've made me braver to ask him for a picture next time I see him :D Is the picture you talked about your profile pic?

Hi Maria -
Wanted to thank you & Kelly for starting the new Twitter & FB page for Mike (yes I'm a certifiable "Lugnut") - I've chatted with Kelly before on Twitter but never had a chance to officially say hi to you before - I've been having so much fun trying to brainstorm ideas for ALL the guys and so happy you girls have generated so much excitement already with Mike's love group on Twitter (and even got him to follow - WOW)
Do you live in or near NYC - I'm originally from the Bronx but live in Waterbury CT just shy of 2 hours from midtown Manhattan - Believe it or not I've had a hard time finding Chasers from the NYC Metro area from the city north (NJ yes but few in southern NY itself or CT) - Did you attend any other shows other than the one at the Beacon Theater
Please drop me a line sometime on my profile here or find me on FB or Twitter - Thanks again for sharing your love for Mike & SNC
Your Chaser friend -

Glad to help, Maria! And don't worry.. it took us a little while to figure it out, too. ;) WebCrew's picture

Hey Maria,

Great observation about the videos on the feedback thread, we'll pass it along. We can see how that might get a bit frustrating so one way around it, and this is what we do, is to right click on the video you're interested in and click "Open in New Tab" or "Open in New Window". That way, once you are finished watching the video, you can exit that page and continue browsing where you left off on the other page.

Hope this helps!

Welcome to Chaserville! Shaina pretty much said everything I was going to say in her comment. lol But I would recommend getting a twitter and following the guys. All the guys in the group have a twitter, and most of them tweet pretty often. And it's a good way to learn more about them an their personalities.

And lots of Chasers are on twitter as well. That's where I've met most of them. Chaser's are some of the sweetest, kindest people you will ever meet. My twitter is!/SluggzLuvah_SNC, so if you venture on there, follow me! :)

Nice to meet you, and I hope to get to know you better soon! :)

Hi Maria!! I'm glad you commented on my profile; it's always great to meet new Chasers! And anyways, the first step in meeting new Chasers is chatting with some. ;)

The Chaser community is just that--a big community, or some might say that we're one big family, in every sense of the word! I can tell you that I, personally, have met SO MANY wonderful and amazing people through Straight No Chaser and the Chaser community that I otherwise would never have come into contact with, and for that, I'm truly grateful. I hope you'll make some amazing friendships as well!

A great way to get in touch with other Chasers is to actively become involved in Twitter and on Facebook (other than through this site, of course!). The members of SNC, as well as a large group of Chasers, are very active on both social media sites, and there is always something going on. If you'd like, you can add me as a Facebook friend ( and follow me on Twitter (, and I'll introduce you to other Chasers. They're always so welcoming and friendly, so if you're new to either social network, I'm sure you'll find someone to help you out. :)

Another few things that you might be interested in looking into are two projects that I'm involved with. The SNC FanChat podcast ( is a great source for news and updates on SNC, but even better, we feature interviews with the group members so you can get your SNC fix whenever and wherever you are! And, SNC Quarter Notes ( is a fan-run magazine that is centered around SNC and the a cappella community. It's a great place to get music recommendations, behind-the-scenes looks at how things run, and stories on other a cappella groups that are similar to SNC.

I hope this helps! Please don't hesitate to contact me again with any questions or about anything at all! And welcome to Chaserville! We're crazy, but in the best way possible.
