Nice to make your acquaintance, old friends and new!

Some of you used to know me as Mandy Z.  I will no longer be using that name or accounts associated with it.

I never liked my name growing up. “Maaaaaandy” is how my ears heard my old name, all nasally and irritating to me.

Over the years I was fascinated by the Bible and the paradox between good and evil. Especially when I made the shocking discovery adults lie.

I knew I would change my name one day when I was ready. I also knew I wanted to keep the A and the Z of my old birth name. It made me think of Alpha and Omega.

I settled on my new name years ago.

In day to day life now, I am Ava Maria.

When I am in performance mode though, I am Ava Zatanas.
