Cara Santa Maria Wiki, Bio

Getting to know her beyond the TV and those other things, Cara Santa was born Cara Louise Santa Maria on October 19, 1983. She grew up in Texas with her elder sister and a teacher parent while the other was an engineer.


Although she was born and raised a Catholic, she later converted with her parents to Mormonism, before she later came out as an atheist after the divorce of her parents.

For her education, the beautiful science communicator graduated from the Plano East Senior High School from where she moved to the University of North Texas where she obtained a  Bachelor of Science degree in psychology with a minor in philosophy. While as a student, she worked at the Center for Network Neuroscience chief cell culture technician.

Before joining in as a media person, Cara was involved in teaching biology and psychology courses to university undergraduates and high school students. She was able to manage this very well in Texas and New York.

She later moved to Los Angeles to pursue a science communication career. It was after this move that she got the opportunity to develop a pilot for HBO and to appear on different television programs, promoting science education for a mainstream audience.

After she had kick started with the media, she made appearances on Top TV stations including CNN, CBS, BBC, and Fox. She also appeared on Current TV, Fox News, G4tv, Nat Geo WILD, Science Channel, SundanceTV, and the Travel Channel.

Looking at her entire profile, one really has to wonder how the woman is able to put all these together and still keep going. This is because she also takes care of her podcast which she created, Talk Nerdy. Other podcasts that she is involved with include Point of InquiryStar Talk, and the Joe Rogan Experience.

She was also a co-host of TechKnow on Al Jazeera America. Considering how far she has gone not many would believe that she came in as a science communicator.

Apart from the fact that there was the obvious age difference between the two, it was “Bill can never stay with one woman for more than a few years. He always gets bored and just wants to go back to playing the field.” That, has been said to be the problem with the relationship.

From then on, there have been no reports of her dating anyone else or maybe she has been very good at concealing it.
