Founder & CEO
Maria Calabrese, J.D., former CEO/Founder of MC Squared Entertainment, thrives off giving a voice to artists and helping them get the exposure they deserve. Her education and entertainment experience include marketing, law, cross-cultural communications, traditional TV/film management, branding, and production. Collaborating with raw talent to produce groundbreaking work is what has kept her deeply seated in the entertainment industry for over twenty years. During this massive shift from traditional television to new media, her focus has remained on the empowerment, management, and profitability of content creators and talent across all mediums. Like traditional broadcasting, she believes new content does not need just to compete for eyeballs, it can say something and can be commercially viable at the same time.
Maria is excited to help artists and brands grow within the digital space and tear down walls once created by entrenched entertainment industry gatekeepers. She feels we are at the beginning of a new wave of celebrity, where fame and influence can be channeled to produce entertaining yet social-conscious content that still benefits the client, the artist, audience, and advertiser. Her endless energy and enthusiasm has resulted in many awards and dinstinctions, including recently being honored as Mentor of the Year 2016, from LA Team Mentoring, a Non-Profit organization that provides services for at-risk youth.
