Maurizio Benazzo grew up in Italy, and in 1984, he came to the United States on a 98-year-old sailing boat. He started working as an actor, model, and filmmaker, but his thirst for knowledge was only satisfied in 2001 upon encounteringI Am That, the seminal work by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, while he was in India shooting the award-winning documentaryShort Cut to Nirvana.

Maurizio and Zaya merged their lifelong passions for science and mysticism when they met in 2007, and their first project together was filming the documentaryRays of the Absolute on the life and teachings of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. This project sparked their next level of creation and collaboration: Science and Nonduality (SAND)a global community inspired by the timeless wisdom traditions, informed by modern science, and grounded in direct experience.
