About Mary

I'm a multi-media journalist and have worked professionally in video, photo, and audio. The diversity in my work allows me to be adaptable to new environments and work...and keep things funky.

I'm currently working on an independent podcast called Parks, an audio documentary on the history of Indigenous land theft that lead to the creation of America's National Parks.

I've been a photo editor at Outside Magazine and NPR, a freelancer across the U.S. for The New York Times and Washington Post, and have worked as an audio intern at USA TODAY. I also created a magazine called Fools, and studied journalism at the School of International Training in Morocco.
