Marron is the daughter of Mexican immigrants and one of 10 children, who got her start in dance while growing up in inner-city Chicago. Her personal experiences were eventually woven into her debut hip-hop indie feature Go for It! (2011). Despite having no formal training in the entertainment industry, Marron wrote, produced and directed her first film, which sold out at festivals across the country, won four awards, and was bought and distributed by Lionsgate in theaters throughout the U.S.
Marron also wrote, produced and directed her second film, Endgame (2015), starring Rico Rodriguez (“Modern Family”). The film, about a young boy who tries to help his school’s chess team to reach the Texas state finals, was released theatrically by AMC and premiered on HBO. She is as well directed episode 2 from season 4 on Ava DuVernay’s Queen Sugar series.
