Maria Curb

Role: Co-Founder, Media and Marketing Officer

Raised with the small-town love and a big city vibe, Maria was born in Honolulu, HI. Growing up there, she found herself in musical and artistic scenes that continuously inspired her. In 2016, she packed her bags and headed for what she saw as an American music epicenter, not only for big gig concert venues and festival blowouts but also for the heart of the music that lies in grungy underground beer stacks and lively curbside performances on the Philly streets. An artist herself, she saw the beauty in the activism of expression and found herself immersed in the night-life and culture that she came for. She has always been geared though towards bringing people together with her entrepreneurship skills and her eye for design. She has been working towards graduating with her coordinated BFA from The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and The University of Pennsylvania by the spring semester of 2021. As of now, her focus is on her art history and elected academics as well as earning her certificate in Leadership and Communication and Data Analytics from UPenn. For her first semester at UPenn she volunteered with Nancy Makale and Dana Leifert in fundraising for Dada Safarini, a club that strives to support and educate women in Kenya about menstrual health. In the summer of 2019 she worked primarily as lead media and marketing officer and cofounder of Qurrent with Muammar Johnson for their app, Qurrent, and has been working with Johnson ever since. On the side, she interviews business owners to write stories for the Vegetarian Society of South Jersey’s website page and is working on creating a Philadelphia chapter that offers group meetups to learn more about the plant-based lifestyle. Curb has also been exhibiting her art and curating galleries in the US for the past few years.
