Adventure loving and charismatic, Marisa is a playful actress specializing in comedy - you might have seen her in a viral performance of Carole Baskin.

She loves a role with some meaty sarcasm and performs with a vulnerability that has made

grown men cry. 

 

Recent projects include the lead role in the romantic comedy, Love at First Spite.

Originally from South Dakota, Marisa currently resides in Los Angeles where she also works as a writer & producer.

When Marisa isn't acting/writing/producing, 

she's probably coddling a houseplant, painting a watercolor, or eating cheese.

Q & A

What's your favorite kind of project to work on?

MARISA: I used to only want to do comedy, but personal tragedy has sparked a need for emotional dramas - its cathartic for both the audience and performer.

 

It’s also been eye-opening to work on projects that draw attention to social issues.

What are your favorite characters to play? 

Fearless characters that charge recklessly towards their goals.

What would some dream jobs be?

Performing as the lead in a comedy feature - Love at First Spite - was a dream come true.

To quote the great Britney Spears, "Give me more."

I also enjoy creating projects that amplify the voices of the underserved,

like the 60+ year old women in my High Heals script. 

Who would you love to work with?

I'm tickled with Paul Feig's use of his platform to promote minority and female film makers. It'd be fun to work with Amy Schumer on a project. (We could play sisters?) 

What are some of your favorite movies?

The Trial of the Chicago 7Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

and I can always watch Across the Universe.

Favorite TV Shows?

Black Mirror is revolutionary, I’d love to act in an episode.

Another favorite is High Maintenance.

Thoughts for 2021?

My mantra this year is "Only More" -

More water, more creating, more laughs, more adventure… lets do it!
