About

About

Meg's ethusiasm for image-making is apparent in the energy of her photographs. After over a decade of also simultaneously working in post-production as a highly-skilled retoucher, Meg has developed an acute eye for detail and light. She currently resides in Los Angeles, California. 

She is co-creator and editor-in-chief of Got a Girl Crush, an annual print magazine about women, by women, for everyone. Meg takes her visual and editing talents to create a magazine that aims to disrupt the broken narrative of most women's publications. Got a Girl Crush tells stories of all ages, races, and backgrounds of women all over the world.
