I’m a professional Fairygodmother. I specialize in storytime, dancing in the kitchen, snuggles, teatime, all things sugar and spice and I have a Poppins Certificate and advanced degree in Earth Mother Studies. I am a University Of Michigan Graduate and an alumn of the Interlochen Arts Academy. I'm a Singer, Actor, Writer, Producer, Artistic and Creative Director/Consultant, Project Manager, Composer and have worked in that capacity as well as an Event Planner for several theaters, performance companies, artists, musicians, creative arts organizations and non-profits for a decade. I was raised on a healthy diet of English literature, Star Trek/Wars, PBS, Astronomy and The Classics: music, rock and film. I am also an amateur Herbalist, love to cook, host grassroots fundraisers, volunteer with the elderly and travel the world and in space & time. My poetry has been featured in All Roads Magazine. I am also a member of the Actor’s Equity Association. My goal in life is to be "a Light in dark places when all other lights go out." MayaJ.com
This is Maya and Evan and we’re Library Card Productions!
Library Card Productions is a creative partnership that
is the result of an 11-year friendship(when we first launched,
now we've known each other for 15 years). We met
when we were just wee babes in the woods. Literally. We
were in the woods working with a performance company
just outside of New York City. Nothing forms a quicker
or more lasting bond than reciting Shakespeare, doing
Improv Comedy and singing folk songs while being caked
in equal layers of mud, sweat and tears (of laughter). We have over a decade of experience in media production and the creative arts spanning everything from film, photography, music, theater, festivals, music videos, podcasts, live events and more. We worked independently for 9 years and in 2014 decided to combine our experience, skills, resources and interests toward the shared goal that is our motto: “Bringing Your Ideas and Projects to Life and Fostering Community through Storytelling via creative multi-genre & cross platform media. We help you tell your story." After 2 years of working together we decided to make it official and formed Library Card Productions in 2016. We've now officially been in business as LCP for 3 years, we've known each other for 15 years, and just got married in the fall of 2018!
Maya is The Visionary. She has the uncanny ability to see what people want and need and she makes manifest their dreams and goals, often she does this for people who can’t quite express exactly what it is they need – magically she just knows. For years I’ve seen Maya help others (myself included) achieve their creative goals, be it as a producer, consultant, writer, stage/project manager or artistic director. Maya can see not only the big picture, but also all of the details needed to take along the way. On top of all of this, she is the smartest person I know: warm, kind, creative and a wickedly talented writer, great actor, and gifted singer. I couldn’t ask for a better partner in crime.
Evan is the Architect. If you want your stuff to look and sound good, you call on Evan to make it happen. His outside-the-box thinking, shrewd sense of design, style, and timing combined with his eye and ear for perfection enable him to execute any project to its fullest potential. His colleagues and peers know him to be the guy who gets the job done, and this is a testament not only to his wonderful talent and skills but also to his unwavering work ethic, cooperative spirit and problem solving; all of which I’ve relied on as well. Evan is the smartest person I know (tied with my mom and uncle ☺), he is a production chimera, with accomplished technical skills, innovative ideas, humility and wit. I am lucky to have him as my comrade in arms.
I’m one of Nature's Bandits; the Raccoon is my spirit animal. I graduated with high honors for my MA in Media Studies from The New School. I am a Geek, class A, and excel in all things nerdy. I’ve also graduated from the School for Scoundrels where I majored in Cookery, Board Games, Comics and learning how to steal honey with bears. I work as an AV Production and Post-Production Specialist, Photographer, Director, Editor and Videographer. You can check out my work here
SolCardProductions.com, a lot of which was done in conjunction with Maya and can also be found on this site. I volunteer with animals and have participated regularly in several podcasts including Whiskey Rebellion, Loaded Dice Cast (both of which Maya participates in as well) and Breadcrumbs Mag. I also served as an editor, content contributor and designer for the Loaded Dice Network. In 2016 my experimental short film(done with Maya's help) Canistella was featured at the Nyack International Film Festival. Ideally though, I spend my days "Reminiscin' thisnthattin' havin such a good time, Oodelally, oodelally, Golly what a day."
