Mary is an NYC based Director, Cinematographer, and Producer. She once macheted tall grass in the jungles of the Philippines to help push a picture vehicle out of mud just in time for golden hour. All this while wearing a banana suit.
She worked three years as a Digital Strategist at Mekanism - an award-winning ad agency known for making viral campaigns. She worked on brands like Samsung, Ralph Lauren, Brisk, and Pepsi’s AMP. She discovered how a killer idea, simple storytelling, and big emotions go along way for viewers more than mere spectacle. But spectacle is good too.
Mary received her MFA at Tisch School of the Arts for Writing and Directing where she was the recipient of the prestigious Tisch Graduate Fellowship for Cinematography and Carl Lerner Award for Social Significance. She is a co-creator of Water Melts - a Tribeca Film Institute and Google Daydream supported VR rom-com about people whose loved ones could die soon. With her work, she pursues distinct and transformative stories full of bullish heart and levity.
