Mary Traina
Senior Creative Director

NEW YORK, USA // Mary is a CLIO, Promax and Golden Trailer Award-winning Creative Director and published Author living in Brooklyn, New York.

Mary grew up in a small town called Painesville in northeastern Ohio and attended Kent State University, just outside Akron. LeBron James once said, “in Northeast Ohio, nothing is given. Everything is earned” and Mary has repeated that ad nauseam ever since.

She started her career working on a locally broadcast, live-to-tape PBS show called News Night Akron. She then moved to New York and interned at Late Show with David Letterman in 2006 before landing a job at the Syfy Channel, where she was a Writer/Producer/Editor.

Since 2014, Mary has been a Creative Director at A&E. There, she’s lead campaigns for two of cable’s biggest unscripted hits in recent years; Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath and Live PD.

Her book, The Twenty Something Guide To Getting It Together, is currently published by Simon & Schuster. Her writing has also been featured in New York Magazine, Refinery 29, Huffington Post and Hello Giggles.
