Born in Norway, Marisa was raised in the states and became a U.S. Citizen when her Norwegian father became naturalized. It was Marisa's maternal Italian grandfather, Pasquale Fatibeno, who immigrated to American, and gave her the other half of her international roots.
Growing up, Marisa traveled to Europe many times, once even cross-Atlantic, and was fortunate enough to tour much of the continent, as well as Scandinavia, staying at length with family or in unconventional places, like a nun's convent.
With a degree in journalism, Marisa has spent many years writing for the television industry. As an award-winning producer/director/marketer, she has worked on commercial production, show creation, product branding and social media.
