Mary Kenny is a professional creative thinker.
After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, she relocated to NYC and began working as a graphic designer for Broadway (Lincoln Center Theatre, Roundabout Theatre Company), Off Broadway (York Theatre Company, New York Theatre Workshop), and Regional Theatre (Williamstown Theatre Festival).
She expanded her career to entertainment marketing and live-event producing, where she worked with New York's top agencies (VaynerMedia, Ryan Seacrest's Civic Entertainment Group, MKG), production companies (ToDo, 360 Design, High Noon), and major television networks (NBC, HBO, CBS).
In October of 2014, she left her miserable life in NYC for a year on the road. She converted a 1984 Winnebago into MOTORHOMEmade, a crowd-funded “roving artist’s residency” encouraging cross-country collaboration with musicians, foodies, craftsmen, artists, educators, filmmakers, photographers, thespians and small-town entrepreneurs. She spent 9 months traveling solo, while blogging about artists’ dedication to their community’s cultural scene. Whatever you do, please don't ask her if she's read Cheryl Strayed's WILD.
After breaking down in Los Angeles, Mary decided to stay. She's currently in the midst of her very own McConaissance. Since moving to LA, she directed the world-premiere of a new play Tina and Amy Hate Each Other, production designed the ZABRUSO pilot, co-wrote YouTube Red's The Keys of Christmas (feat. Mariah Carey), independently produced a sold-out screening of A League of Their Own to benefit The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, designed a 7-story mural that was painted on the corner of Hollywood & Vine, and performed stand-up at the World Famous Comedy Store. She also wants to mention that her Etsy store, where she sells custom rubber stamps, is thriving.
In January 2017, she founded resisterhoodLA, a volunteer group curating a monthly volunteer opportunity for Angelenos. Her proudest accomplishment to date.
She is available for freelance creative opportunities. (She would really like to design the queue-line for a theme park ride.)
