T3 Woman Marin Preske: A taste for the wine life

As a sommelier, wine, food and travel are just a few of T3 Woman Marin Preske’s favorite things. Can you blame her? We sat down with Marin as she uncorked her journey to finding her true passion, her personal challenges and her thoughts on T3.


Q: Becoming a sommelier is quite a commitment. When did you know that was what you wanted to do?

A: It was a gradual progression: a long time passion turned into a personal pursuit (getting certified) that eventually turned into a career.


Q: What is the number one lesson you teach to women in your monthly classes about wine? 

A: There are two things I try to stress: One, learning about wine should be a delicious and fun experience, not intimidating or elitist. And two, taste as much as you possibly can. It’s the best way to understand and figure out what you like.


Q: What has been your biggest professional challenge? How did you overcome it?

A: Working in the hospitality industry comes with daily challenges both large and small. It is an overarching professional challenge to handle them all with grace, patience and wit.


Q: What gives you daily inspiration and keeps you motivated?

A: The gift that I am working in a field that I love, doing a job I enjoy. Every day I feel grateful and that is a big source of both inspiration and motivation.


Q: What empowers you?

A: I find a great source of empowerment and support in the wine community that I’m fortunate enough to be surrounded by, especially the female wine community here in L.A.


Q: What is the most valuable piece of advice someone has given you? 

A: Go for your dreams because anything is possible.


Thoughts on T3…


Q: How have T3 tools helped you in your daily life? 

A: They help me style my hair quickly and effectively without feeling like i’m over-processing or damaging my hair. I also like the clean and modern design of the tools. 


Q: What does beautiful outside, and powerful inside mean to you?

A: Security with oneself, intelligence, passion and positivity; someone who is confident, but who is always looking to grow. 


Q: Curls or straight? How would you rather wear your hair?

A: Straight.
