Q: At what age have you started acting and modeling?
MARIELA I’V – A: I started modelling at age 12 I use to say 14 but I always forget I did shoot in catalog shoots starting at age 12 for campaigns such as Kmart & JCPenney. My first runway show was at age 14 in California for a international hair show with top hair stylist’s of the world. As for acting I started at around the same age as well. I was always fascinated with the arts and theatre. My focuses on school growing up was theatre and the arts. But not to be confused I specialize in film as a actress not in the genre of theatre and TV. As a actor we have our niche we prefer to focus on, mine is film. My first feature film I was in was at age 16 in Colorado “Picture of a Portrait Perfect” what happened to this film not sure.
Q: Aside from your acting and modeling career, you are also a DJ. What led you to being an DJ and can you share some of your original top 3 fav mixes?
MARIELA I’V – A: In my teenage years since I was 16 I always was in the scene of the rave industry, going to massive warehouse parties with top Dj performances in Colorado where I grew up. I always was very social and knew everyone by the time I was 19, that includes business owners of clubs, designers, beauty owners, magazine owners and the elite scene. I would DJ for fun if it was with a friend that would teach me or a after party. But I always was interested in being a actress and did attend Metropolitan State University of Denver so I was busy with school. I grew up in a family where I had to be doctor , a lawyer , a business type person for a career field as my sister , brother and most of my family work in the corporate and the professional field also have there masters. I was going to be a pediatrician but then studied Communication Design and a minor in fine arts and theatre. I started my own production at age 21 producing events and then my production grew to producing tours, photo shoots and producing film. I started producing events with my friends club at the time in Denver DC10 this is what always kept me In the industry of music as well. My friends that own this club are also the producers and owners of global dance festival which they throw huge annual Festivals yearly with top DJ’s. When I moved to LA because of my marriage in the past I was only focusing on my Actress career mainly but my modelling career always was what grabbed the spotlight and gave me lots of exposure. Music has always been a motivator for me and lives in me. I have my own pioneer equipment and enjoy making new remixes its meditative for me. I do compose my remixes in a theatrical way. Introduction, climax and then a conclusion of what I may feel or what is hot at the time. Music engineering skills. My top 3 remixes is many but I would say my recent one for Labor Day weekend that was a live set I did for Mix 247 Edm Vegas Radio & Twitch. You can listen to the set at
