About

Marielou Mandl

I am a full time professional Digital Content and Experiential Event Producer. That means I work with teams to make content and events happen for brands. This blog is a creative outlet to share my knowledge with people that want to understand basic photography, social media, content creation, and what the heck it is a producer does. Being creative with technology gives me so much joy. I hope to inspire and empower others to do the same!

Fun Facts

As long as I am not putting myself or others in danger, I am usually willing to try anything just to say I did – especially if it scares me.

I always have at least one camera on me, but usually more.  Seriously ALWAYS ready to shoot

I have survived the following natural disasters – earthquake, flood, hurricane, typhoon, tornado, and volcano. Yup! I was in the Philippines during the Mt. Pinatubo eruption in 1991.

I am classically trained in improv comedy. By classically trained, I mean I have completed levels 1 – 4 at Upright Citizens Brigade.  I loved it. I miss it. Everyone should try it.

In school, I taught myself to take notes backwards in cursive.

My favorite movie is Back to the Future.

I have competed in a few beauty pageants.  Some random one when I was 8, Miss Teen Fil-Am when I was 17, and Miss California USA 2010. They were all interesting experiences.

I learned to drive on a stick shift. Once I learned how to do that, I realized I probably could learn anything.

Sometimes, when I’m not behind the camera, I am hosting in front of the camera at Maria Menunos’ online network AfterbuzzTV.

Hosting is the job I have been doing the longest – since I was 12 years old! My first gig was hosting and producing the Everitt Middle School Morning and Afternoon Announcements.
