As a military brat, Mary has traveled all over the world. She considers her hometown to be Okinawa, Japan where she was born and eventually graduated high school. She discovered her love for film during her senior year of high school when she had the opportunity to participate in a student film festival in South Korea. The following year, Mary enrolled in Film Studies program at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. In addition to Film Studies, Mary is also attempting to earn a degree in Business Administration. She hopes to one day be a producer in the film industry. When she’s not hard at work, this island native can be seen goofing off with friends, trying out different forms of fitness, exploring downtown Wilmington, and meeting new people. Her biggest weakness – anything and everything chocolate!
