Marja Diaz works for National Geographic in Documentary Films and is based in Los Angeles, CA. She is a Stanford University graduate, with a degree in Human Biology: Behavioral Neuropsychology and an Italian minor. She is bilingual in both English and Spanish, and proficient in Italian.
Her passion for travel and language has led her to every continent but Antarctica (it’s on the list!), and inspired her love for photography. When not traveling, working on her photography, or determining the ways in which behavioral psychology can shape conservation efforts, she can be found indulging in her fourth favorite past-time – bad comedies.
Ultimately, she hopes to combine her passion for photography, film and science to spread awareness and inspire change for our planet and its wildlife.
Her most recent travels include Cuba, South Africa, Ghana and Italy.
