Ma is native Brazilian based in New York City whose artistic identity revolves around acting, writing, creating music and performing. She graduated from the Stella Adler Studio of Acting Professional Conservatory. Prior to moving to the U.S., Ma was studying acting and fully immersed in the theatre scene in Brazil. Over the years, on stage, she played the roles of Carmen from The Balcony by Jean Genet, Vladimir from Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett, Bobbi from Some Girls by Neil Labute and Muffet from Uncommon Women and Others by Wendy Wasserstein.

In 2014, Ma was cast as the lead in the feature film A História de M, that aimed to highlight and give a voice to Brazilian culture. In an effort to fundraise for this same feature film, a short film was created called, Mãe do Ouro, for which Ma traveled back to Brazil from New York to star in during the following summer in 2015. In April 2016, Ma became a member of Saudade Theatre, the first theatre company in New York City created to celebrate the Portuguese voice and nurture Portuguese writers. 

Ma also joined forces with three other female Brazilian artists to co-found the Evoé Collective, an award-winning collective dedicated to promote Brazilian culture abroad.  In June 2017, she had her playwright debut with Norma Jeane Was A Brunette, a play she wrote and starred in. Last year, Ma finished writing her first feature film script. The screenplay won Best Screenplay at the 2020 Feedback LGBT Toronto Film Festival.

 

Besides her love for theatre, Ma is a trained DJ and music maker. She graduated from AIMEC DJ School and later on became the DJ and promoter of Lez Girls Party, a monthly event created to support the LGBTQ community in her hometown of Porto Alegre.  In New York, Ma continued to pursue music while working with Grammy Award winning music producer Bob Brockmann.  They produced Ma's first track  Black Money . Together, they also worked on her second single I Want Ur Luv. Most recently, Ma collaborated with multi-instrumentalist Tania Kass, on the pop ballad Where Have You Been, My love? and finished producing her latest pop single Electric Elegance.
