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: the Indigenous history of the colonization of National Park land in the U.S. I've worked as a producer and fact-checker for shows like American Prodigies and Kaiser Health News: American Diagnosis. I've also worked as an audio intern for USA TODAY.

As a photographer, I freelance around the midwest for The Washington Post and The New York Times. I've also been a photo editor at Outside Magazine and NPR. 

I was a Fulbright young journalism scholar, guest lectured at the University of Iowa Journalism school. I run a google group called Fact Check Us, and attended M.I.T's KSJ Fact-checking workshop this year.

I love rock climbing, fantasy books and I'm always working on a passion project. Feel free to email!
