Meet Maggie Cocco – VoyageMichigan


A five minute read’s worth of highly condensed, little filtered perceptions and intentions. The exercise of summing yourself up for public consumption is a whole thing, and then to see what is essentially you on paper…the cocktail of emotions is stomach churning. 

I had the challenge and opportunity of synthesizing my career, outlook, projects, and story for VoyageMichigan Magazine. I’d done an interview with Voyage on behalf of Girls Rock Detroit, and was subsequently asked if I’d do a feature on myself. What went to print (with my permission) is the full word-for-word interview above. My thoughts about it haven’t settled yet, but I’d love to know yours!

Cheers and thanks to George Montrelle and Olivia Van Goor who recommended me and GRD to be featured 🙏 Featured photos by Nicole Mallory, Micky Nogher, Dontae Rockymore, Lisa Joan, Olivia Garelja, Anna Terwiel, and Creative Northland
