A little bit more about me

Music Business Graduate


For more than  5 years, Mariana Villanueva has been involved in the music industry and international studies.

Lately, she has shifted towards music supervision in film and entertainment in Mexico, creating artists' development plans and involving herself with Nación Creativa; an Ltd that focuses on positive artistic exchange in Mexico. While working on diverse projects that leave a social, cultural and humane footprint. 

Brought up in a classical, jazz, disco, trova, classic rock and progressive household; Villanueva grew up with a variety of music throughout her life which developed into a reflexive, complex, and edgy perspective towards music. This would later manifest in her work and daily behavior. This interest in music and culture eventually took her to Manchester, England, where she had the opportunity to take international art and social studies courses. This further developed her multicultural perspective which had been forming since high school. This unique multicultural perspective was the primary factor in her decision to attend Full Sail’s Intensive Bachelor’s Program as an international student.

Said multicultural necessity and work experience with Mexican indie bands, took her into abandoning her Audio and Music Production studies to assist in one of the best entertainment schools in America, Full Sail University. While studying the intensive bachelor's program, she had a chance to connect with students all over the world and appreciate different scenes, careers, and ideologies from her fellow student's environment. While working on different social media sites, brand creation, artist management, independent music video production, small live shows, and conceptualization projects.
