Bio

Maria founded Casper Magazine as a way to inspire people, aiming to inform a global audience about the latest in design, art, fashion, wellness, and culture. With a diverse background in design, branding, and property, Maria has an immense appreciation for aesthetics and innovative design. Still, her predominant passions remain in sustainable and ethical projects together with health & well-being. 

At her core, she believes that, collectively, humans have a responsibility to help one another and to cooperate to restore and protect our planet. 

"For me, compassion, knowledge, and appreciation are the pillars for progression and growth.” – Maria Ugrinovski
