When she’s not riding the F train or catching rays in Prospect Park, she can be found, camera in hand, trying to make magic happen. A graduate of NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study with a degree in storytelling, (yes for real, storytelling!), Meghan has always strived to construct narratives out of the world around her. Photographer, videographer, writer and tv junkie are just a few things that describe the busy life of Meghan, and those are just her hobbies outside of work! When she’s not snapping pics or cutting vids, she can be found, cold beer in hand, telling tons of stories about her clumsy, messy life. One day she strives to have the courage to tell her stories on stage like those at Yum’s. But for now, she’ll stick to the videos. Her favorite ice cream flavor is chocolate chocolate chip.
