Marina graduated with an MFA in Film Editing from the American Film Institute Conservatory in 2003, just as reality TV was emerging as a major presence on network and cable television. For six years she worked as an editor on such shows as The Biggest Loser (NBC), The Amazing Race (CBS), Big Brother (CBS), and Beauty and the Geek (The CW), until she moved out of the edit chair.


Marina went on to become a Supervising Producer and later a Co-Executive Producer, where she oversaw the Post departments of shows like Ink Master (Spike), Hard Parts: South Bronx (Speed), Best Funeral Ever (TLC) and I Used to be Fat (MTV). She then took her command of Post and applied it to all aspects of Production – from development to field producing – when she became Executive Producer of Impractical Jokers (truTV), along with its spin-offs Jokers Wild and Inside Jokes.


She is currently the Showrunner of the series Impractical Jokers: After Party, a late-night variety series on truTV.
