I'm Mary,

I'm a freelance audio and photo journalist based in Chicago.

I'm the creator and reporter for the independent podcast Parks which was recently featured on Apple Podcasts.

I currently fact-check at Spotify Podcasts and for print publications. I've worked as a producer and fact-checker for shows like American Prodigies and American Diagnosis

As a photographer, I freelance in Chicago for The New York Times and The Washington Post, and have covered everything from sensitive portraiture to the aftermath of shootings.

This summer, I taught at the University of Chicago's college prep program, and regularly guest lecture at the University of Iowa. I also teach at the Western Slope Photojournalism Workshop each summer in Paonia, Colorado.
