German-born, French-educated, US-residing, having lived in five countries, holding two passports and jumping from one language and culture to another comfortably in English, French, German and Spanish, Marion is truly born and educated to work in an international global business setting.
I am passionate about my work. I always give 100%.
* Applying solid organizational and logistical skills on all productions, resulting in streamlined, budget-friendly shoots. No zig-zagging travel with me.
*Working in many languages on the same project, especially on border stories.
*Being able to bridge cultures and languages, code switching to relate to interviewees equally, whether they are Spanish-speaking workers or show business VIPs.
*Never having missed a deadline in over a decade of weekly PR campaigns. The story went out 5 am on Mondays, come rain or shine.
*Applying my grandmother's etiquette rule: treat everyone as you want to be treated. I am always polite, whether I am talking to a president or a gang OG. Yes, they are not that different from each other.
* My proven track record in award submission writing for my event and entertainment PR clients. They have worked tirelessly to deliver event success and I am honored to be trusted to present the story to award committees.
It's always a new adventure!
No other occupation in the world allows me to explore the rainforest for a lost city in Honduras and follow that up with a Hollywood Award Show Red Carpet.
Some of my favorite memories:
*being invited by the National Guard to fly along on their Black Hawk helicopters to cover the catastrophes of the Great Flood of the Mississippi
*working on the largest private cattle ranch in the USA
*filming orca pods around Hanson Island, British Columbia, Canada
*landing and catapulting off air craft carrier USS Carl Vinson
*saving piglets from a flood while filming
*interviewing Hugh Hefner
