About me

Marcia graduated with a BFA in painting, and began her career drawing animated Saturday morning cartoons for Marvel Comics.  After eight years, she moved to the computer industry, designing computer games. As that industry evolved with the advent of the internet, Marcia moved to designing and producing software for businesses.  Every year, the computer industry became more and more stressful, and she and her husband, Kim, spent more time in Mexico in out of the way places where they couldn't be reached by nagging CFO's. Eventually, they purchased a small piece of jungle-covered beach in Southern Quintana Roo. That piece of beach became Mayan Beach Garden Inn, where Marcia and Kim are now permanent residents.
