Maro LaBlance

brand storyteller

I’m a natural connector of people, brands, media, and the stories in which we mutually share interest. I truly believe one of the main reasons I’m good at it is because I so passionately care (okay and because I live for gold stars.) With over 15 years of experience in international marketing, brand strategy, public relations, creative direction, copy writing, market research, and just about everything in between, my modern-day focus is on overall strategy, PR, and assembling the right people for the right projects.

True dat: Last one down’s having the most fun.

I call San Diego home base, though the mountains are where I really feel home. 

I’m a filmmaker, with a passion for stories and find my best work comes from collaborating with passionate people who love what they do. Whenever I don’t have a camera in my hands, you can find me roasting coffee late into the night.
