Born in Coushatta, Louisiana, Al LeGrand began work in broadcast media in the early 70's when radio was a theatre of the mind and both television and movies left something to your imagination. He began a marketing career in the early 80's with a few small clients and the ability to paint a picture and tell a story with words. Most of those clients are still with LeGrand & Associates as the business approaches their 36-year anniversary. Al is most proud of his advertising team which allows him time for his many hobbies that include writing, painting and playing golf.

She has been the author of hundreds of award winning commercials. Mary enjoys music, movies, painting, traveling and family reunions.
