Hi, I’m Marian.
I’m a writer living in San Francisco. Please, step into my office.

I always dreamed of being a writer.

My first-ever byline was at age 11 in Highlights for Kids — a poem about dragons. Alas, that particular literary masterpiece is lost to the ages.

Today I work full time as a copywriter for Marie Forleo. In my free time, I keep writing #cantstopwontstop.

I’ve written about how my husband and I manage our money (hint: what’s mine is not his) and my struggles with being an expat.

Sometimes the stories are funny. Sometimes I’m trying not to get tears on my keyboard as I write. My work has been published in Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Good Housekeeping, xoJane (RIP), The Penny Hoarder and more. Check out my favorite projects below.


“Marian is one of the most ambitious, proactive and provocative writers I've ever had the pleasure to work with.”
