In addition to working for National Geographic Channel, Mariana van Zeller serves as a correspondent and producer for Fusion, a television cable and satellite Hispanic news and satire show. She also worked as a correspondent for Current TV’s “Vanguard” documentary series.
It’s also worth noting that she’s a co-founder of MUCK media, which she co-founded with Alex Simmons, Darren Foster, and Jeffrey Plunkett. The 7th of May 1976 saw the birth of Van Zeller in the Portuguese city of Cascais, where she grew up and completed her secondary education.
Graduated with a B.A. (Bachelor of Arts) degree from Lisbon, Portugal’s Universidade Lusádia de Lisboa. SIC was the first and largest private Portuguese television network, and she worked as the network channel’s travel and international section after graduating from high school. SIC Notcias, a news station owned by the same firm, later hired her as a reporter.
She fills out the Columbia University School of Journalism application form later on, when she decides to continue her education and acquire a master’s degree. For three applications, she received a rejection letter.
Her third application was rejected in 2001 so she flew to New York and knocked on the dean’s door to convey her desire to become a journalist in the United States. She was finally accepted into the program because of her impressive performance.
Within three hours of her arrival in New York, Van Zeller was on the phone with SIC, the Portuguese television station where she had previously worked for two years, telling her that she would be reporting live from New York on the events of September 11th.
After graduating from Columbia University and obtaining a master’s degree, she relocated to London. While working as an undercover journalist in 2003, she and her now-husband, Darren Foster, documented the Syrian mujahideen’s entrance into Iraq to oppose the United States invasion.
It was Shen’s job as a journalist to chronicle a clash between Brazilian Indians and the world’s largest diamond mine.
Darren Foster, a well-known music producer, is her husband. A few people are aware of Van Zeller’s personal life. We don’t know if she and her spouse have had a baby yet. Currently, she and her family are based in Los Angeles, California. She hasn’t released her net worth or salary, but one can guess that she’s making a decent amount of money.
Her works on freelance documentaries are televised on numerous TV shows, by cable networks companies such as CNN, CBC, Channel 4 (UK), PBN, and many more.
She has produced numerous documentaries and stories, including “Sex for Sale: American Escort,” “Inside Secret America,” and “Pimp City: A Journey to the Center of the Sex Slave Trade” in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
For her piece “Rape on the Reservation,” Van Zeller received the Livingston Award in the Young Journalist category in 2011. “The Oxycontin Express,” a documentary on drug usage and smuggling, earned the Peabody Award in 2009 and was honored with Television Academy Honor and nominated for the EMMY award.
