I am Mariella Kaveo, a Dutch girl with Spanish roots in her blooming twenties.
I was born in Madrid, but moved to the Netherlands 3 weeks after my birth. I grew up in a small town named ‘s-Hertogenbosch. As a child I always made up my own plays with my little sister, played/acted along with my favorite movies like Indiana Jones and Alice in Wonderland.
Besides acting I loved to dance. Everyday after school I danced for hours in my own dance studio that I created in our attic. I took weekly (street)dance classes at the local ballet school and performed in several dance shows in Dutch theaters.
After I finished high school I went to Tilburg University where I got my Master degree in Leisure Studies & Business Communication. Since I was focussing on my study, I put aside my passion for acting and dancing.
After graduating I started a fulltime job at a Dutch national bank. My career was growing pretty fast. I got promoted every year and worked as a Social Media Specialist, Community Manager and Marketing & Communication Consultant inside the bank.
Meanwhile I realized more and more that my actually successful corporate career, wasn’t the career I dreamt of and felt passionate about. I got carried away by the standards of society. So… I had the urge to start off on a different path and live my dreams. And I did!
While working at the bank, I was asked to be part of ‘The Bachelor‘ and I loved working in front of the camera. And I instantly got my feeling back for acting and entertainment. So I thought: “Why not give acting classes a shot?” And in what better place can you learn about acting than in Hollywood?!
Since I’ve always worked on my business career, I thought it was time to do something more expressive and creative. I decided to quit my job at the bank and moved to LA to go to acting school to follow my passion.
I found an intensive acting course at the New York Film Academy. I learned different acting techniques and did some movie projects and worked on major film studios like Unervsal Studios and Warner Studios. I totally felt I belonged in the film and entertainment business.
When I got back to the Netherlands, I started out on acting and modeling jobs. I also started a company (MKvO MEDIA) in video production, marketing and branding and worked on film productions, tv show and documentaries, especially for dj’s and events. I love working on all aspects of film, in front, but also behind the camera.
I get inspired and motivated by outstanding, creative and successful people. It also makes me happy to inspire, entertain and motivate people. So I hope to inspire and entertain you!
Make the impossible possible
