Marina knew she had to go into advertising after watching a TV ad that left her in tears (it used Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead, OK?!). Let us tell you, it’s a good thing she saw that spot because she is a copywriter through-and-through. She’s a natural—from writing pithy headlines to crafting radio spots that deliver all the feels. And nothing gives her a rush quite like coming up with THE idea.
A Rio de Janeiro OG, Marina has bounced all over the world—living in Hong Kong, Berlin, New York City, and Los Angeles while making her mark on brands like Mattel, eBay, Kia, Nikon, and Ferrero Rocher. Her love for learning about anything and everything—whether that’s through a Wikipedia rabbit hole or IRL—bodes well for bringing brands those big ideas they need to fuel their business.
Of course, Marina isn’t only a copywriter. She’s also a doting cat mom, a podcast fanatic, and a concert lover. Pretty much a lover of all things pop culture. No matter what she’s doing, though, she’s probably still got that creative brief percolating in the back of her mind.
