WHO IS BEHIND TONICK?
Mari Fuentes | Owner & Executive Producer
Starting out as a young fashion model living off of Top Ramen noodles in Paris, Milan and Tokyo, Mari spent time not only in front of the camera, but also behind. That experience and excitement ultimately led to life in the commercial world, where she happily resides today. Along the way, she honed her project and business management skills working on innovative technology at Microsoft Corp. After moving to LA, Mari began producing and technical directing large scale live events, often times with limited budgets. Being passionate about the creative process, Mari began to executive produce live action projects and refined her skill to resolve 95% of problems before they happen. Spending nearly a lifetime in the entertainment industry, it was only logical for Mari to create TONICK FILMS.
Mari is a self proclaimed technical nerd, master organizer and Morrissey lover.
