Maren is a seasoned, award-winning producer and writer–having experience working with TV networks, large corporations, and agencies. Some of her favorite career highlights include working on The Deadliest Catch, Oprah's Big Give, and Jockeys. After many years in the industry, she decided to update her skills and received her Masters in Digital Communications from the University of Washington.
Though originally from the Pacific Northwest, the desire to work in production and film took her to the East Coast to pursue her education in that field. Upon graduation, she immediately moved to the pulse of the L.A. scene to follow her dream of writing and directing films. Her adaptable style and creative nature got her into quickly learning new skills like crafting pitch packets, writing branded content, developing budgets, overseeing project timelines, and managing vendor relationships.
After a few years working on a variety of projects, she found herself entrenched in the brand new Reality TV business. Maren’s passion for telling others’ true-to-life stories inspired her to write a fictional novel as a reflection of actual occurrences in her life as a single, successful professional. What she calls her labor of love has become her most recent success by publishing an Indie award-winning fiction novel, Lana Fray and the Grand Plan.
Her work as an executive producer on numerous projects led her to head up Mighty Media’s Development team. She loves working with her team to help brands amplify their message through video.
Maren is a native of Seattle where she resides with her husband, Brandon, and her German Shepherd Dog, Tippi. In her spare time, she enjoys wine tasting, long walks outdoors, and–if you get her on the right day–she’ll even go skydiving.
