Hey! I’m Marina Laswick. Also known as Marina Dukes. Also known as @Marooshk on Instagram. I’m a model, photographer,  world traveler, entrepreneur, and now – a blogger!


I’m married to an amazing man who helps bring my dreams to life, and we own a goofy dog who believes she’s a princess (admittedly, that’s probably my fault). I cherish my family, friendships, and God.

I am a lover of all things artsy, from interior decorating to arts and crafts. I have always been a goof at heart – some of my favorite hobbies are beach bumming, traveling, reading, and anything outdoors. I’m a die-hard for a good espresso, Asian cuisine, picture-perfect sunsets and living my life vicariously through Nick from New Girl. 

Some of my coolest accomplishments include crazy international shoots working with PSY (Gangnam Style!) and Miss USA, being featured in Seventeen Magazine and The Knot, and signing with 6 of the best modeling agencies in the world. And all of it started by winning a casting call when I was 16, yet it still feels weird seeing myself in storefront windows at the mall.

Needless to say, I’m happy you’re here and excited to share more adventures with you.
