My name is Mary Elizabeth Cobb but, please, call me Mary. (I started using my full name once I realized that the only other ‘Mary Cobb’ on IMDB had one credit for 1985’s Robocop.) Welcome to my blog!
I’m a performer/blogger from the DirtyDirty better known to the rest of the country as Atlanta, GA. I was raised on OutKast and India Arie, southern soul food, various uses of “bless your heart”, and finding those childhood friends who became my Ride or Dies.
I spent my college years in New Orleans, Louisiana. The easy-going, don’t-take-yourself-too-seriously attitude of this southern gem left a major mark, but the interruption of Hurricane Katrina my sophomore year lead to the end of my time in New Orleans.
Back in Atlanta, I started back up with auditions for film, TV, industrial, and commercial projects while doing double time working at my talent agency.
My gypsy soul eventually lead me to Williamsburg, Brooklyn where I lived, worked, struggled and loved. I immersed myself in long-form improv at Upright Citizens Brigade and studied Meisner technique in acting at the William Esper Studio.
Then, as always happens in Nicholas Sparks novels, I met a boy, fell in love, and moved across the country to start a new chapter in my life. Now, in Oakland, California, I’m exploring my way through West Coast living and teaching Pilates classes in the Bay Area. When I’m not in Northern California, I’m traveling with my One-and-Only’s group of touring musicians. This takes me to cities all over the world and these experiences helped inspire me to start this blog.
To bring attention to the small, everyday aspects of life that make our experiences richer.
