Hey, I'm Mari!

Los Angeles, California

I'm a writer, producer and actor based in Los Angeles. Originally from The Netherlands, I lived in New York for 8 years a before making the move to the west coast. I'm interested in writing and producing stories featuring underrepresented narratives. I'm currently producing a music video (directed by Maya Eshet, who was most recently seen alongside Lily Collins in To The Bone) and a documentary short about the Women's March on Washington that is made solely by women. A narrative short film I co-wrote, co-produced and star in will have its premiere in New York in October of 2017. As an educator, I've worked extensively with the Outreach Division of the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in NYC as both a teacher/teaching artist and performer.
