Her travels have also taken her to one of the top jazz clubs in Asia – the Bamboo Bar in Bangkok, Thailand – where she had several artist-in-residency extended runs. Adding to her extensive musical experiences, Maci is a featured guest vocalist w/several notable orchestras, bands (Arpeggio Jazz and Webb T’s Superband) and pops concerts.
Maci’s other creative endeavors as an actress, model, and spokesperson have afforded her numerous appearances on film (The Sixth Sense), print (Modern Bride, Women’s World Magazine), and television (Law and Order), to name a few. Her charitable contributions include a lullaby entitled “Butterfly Moon”, originally composed for her daughter, which she contributed to a CD for The Mercy Center in Bangkok, which gives aid to orphans and children living with HIV.
An accomplished songwriter, Maci has released several CD’s and has had notable collaborations and licensing/publishing deals with Disney, as well as international jazz releases in Asia and an upcoming vinyl relase with EQ Music Singapore.
