099: David Van Maren on Breaking Into the Entertainment Industry


In this episode, Alycia Darby interview David Van Maren, co-executive director of 4 state pageants for Miss and Teen USA. David has worked in the entertainment industry for 30 years and owned his own agency for over a decade. He is a personal manager and has booked 1,000’s of jobs for models, actors, artists, athletes and more.

In 1999 he judged Miss Washington USA and the next year, he was invited to become the state director. A few years later, he added Idaho, a few years later Montana, and most recently Oregon. He’s now the co-executive producer and state director of 4 state pageants for Miss and Teen USA. He produces live shows, TV, and red carpet events.

David is happily married to Maureen, who I had the pleasure of talking with last week and they have a son.
