Maria Layus

Curious Observer Listener Creative Maker Funny Smart Driven Optimistic Loyal Pragmatic Analytical

Adaptable seasoned award-winning director and writer producer with a proven track record for formulating ideas and turning them into polished, successful campaigns and original content for both linear and non linear platforms.

I’ve managed and prompted interdisciplinary teams and crews. From chasing rock bands to launching Powerpuff girls in Latin America for Cartoon Network. 

In the middle? Hundreds of promos, digital content, short films, interviews and a couple of afterhours.

Fluent in four languages, I've been writing scripts and leading projects at Cartoon Network Latin America for the past nine years in English, Spanish and Portuguese. ......all while confusing bystanders with my non descriptive accent.


I've worked on some pretty cool projects you can see here.
