Richie DeMaria


A recent graduate of Occidental College, news intern Richie DeMaria has already written about dying with dignity, Mars rovers, and the Foo Fighters in the brief few weeks he’s been with The Santa Barbara Independent. In his offprint life, he likes to strike a balance between practicing yoga, going outdoors, and making ambient rock music with his band, Voices of Where. A Santa Barbara native and general life-lover, the little yogi feels very grateful to hold the intern position — and we’re grateful to have him.
