About

Meg is a freelance photo and video journalist in the Los Angeles area, currently available for assignments. 

In the year after graduating from the photojournalism program at Rochester Institute of Technology, Meg traveled throughout the country documenting everything from whitewater rafting in Maine, to wildfires and rodeos in Montana, to Olympians in NYC. She interned in both photography and videography at the Grand Forks Herald in North Dakota, the Billings Gazette in Montana, Eagle Hill School in Massachusetts, and most recently served as a video fellow for the Players' Tribune in NYC. She attended the 2017 Eddie Adams Workshop XXX.  

Meg's career goal is to continue advocating for and contributing to equal women's sports coverage. Her interest in women's sports stems from a long history in athletics. She ran track and field competitively for seven years and saw firsthand how much less seriously women are taken in athletics, from intensity of training to game attendance and media interest. For her senior capstone project, she created a short documentary about a startup all-women's cycling team in Rochester, N.Y.
