Marika Litz was born and raised in Indiana, and moved to New York City to attend Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. At NYU, Marika studied film and television production and now works in post-production as a colorist, coloring everything from feature films to music videos to documentaries. As any good Hoosier, Marika grew up playing basketball and still enjoys getting back on the court every Sunday where they play basketball in a queer basketball league. Marika also volunteers at the Ali Forney Center, an organization dedicated to housing and empowering queer youth. You can follow their Instagram account, @payitnomind, related to Marsha P.
