Is it “Maxi” or “Sandra”?

At this point, I’d rather you call me Maxi! I’m trying to figure out how to phase out “Sandra Molina”, as it was a name I lugged around as a business decision. “Maxi Molina” is what I wish to do business as moving forward.

About Me

Career Overview


My career started early —far too early— before I was even done with highschool, at the age of 17. I never went to college, since by the time I was 18 I was working on Game of Thrones’s comic adaptation. By 19, I was in DC Comics coloring Batman, and by 20 I had worked on several Blizzard IPs, and even Tarzan for Dark Horse.

By the time I was 21, instead of continuing a stellar ascension in the comics industry, I managed to injure my wrist in a permanent way. Rather than force myself to be miserable through the pain continuing the only job I’d known, I decided to turn a new page and start working on my own game, The Hayseed Knight.

The quality of its art, voice acting and narrative spoke for itself, and ever since, I’ve been working directing games for other development teams!
