In 2007 Cary Bell graduated from Webster University with a BA in media communications and international relations. She completed her final year of University at Webster’s Thailand campus, where she produced and directed her first feature length documentary, Barang, which examined Cambodia’s post-genocide reconstruction. Since graduating she has worked for CARE Honduras as a media coordinator, documenting their development projects, and CNN International’s London bureau as a freelance production assistant. There she quickly moved into their feature department, working on Richard Quest’s Business Traveler. After years of traveling the world and working abroad she returned to her hometown, Austin, TX, to produce and direct original content. She has since worked on numerous reality television concepts as a producer, shooter, and director.
