Br. Leo Mary was born and raised in Thibodaux, Louisiana.  In 1992, at 19 years of age, he joined the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word.  He professed perpetual vows in 1998.  With a gift for innovation and a mechanical inclination, Br. Leo has designed and created a workable washing machine, dryer, mechanical bike, catapult and a hovercraft.  He uses his creations and inventions to communicate the Catholic faith to children in his EWTN show “Hey Br. Leo!”  In 2008 he wrote a children’s book with the same title and another in 2012.  Br. Leo continues to build mechanical devices for upcoming shows.
