I'm Mary,

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

I'm the creator and host of the independent podcast Parks. I've worked as a producer and fact-checker for shows like American Prodigies and Kaiser Health News: American Diagnosis. I currently fact-check at Spotify Podcasts.

As a photographer, I freelance in Chicago and Iowa for The New York Times and The Washington Post, covering everything from mass shootings to intimate portraiture.

I'm currently teaching at the University of Chicago's college prep program, regularly guest lecture at the University of Iowa, and teach at the Western Slope Photojournalism Workshop.
