EXECUTIVE PRODUCER, CHICAGO
Curator of Content. Matchmaker. Taskmaster.
Since 2002, I have been wearing all these hats and I’ve been lucky to work at agencies on both coasts and in the middle, producing content all over the globe.
I thrive on being a resource for my creative teams to identify the perfect partner - whether it is a photographer, director, artist, stylist, animator, editor, illustrator, or production company to bring their idea to life. I have an extensive network of contacts that I can tap into when briefed with a project. Organized, efficient, and crackin' the whip when needed.

"Above all, Maggy is passionate about the work. She truly loves photography and film, and has impeccable taste. I value her artist recommendations just as much as I value her production expertise. She consistently helps me shape the work, and delivers it all on budget, every time. She makes every project better for having been a part of it. Beyond that, she's a pleasure to work with, and an all around excellent human being. I can't say enough good things." Jay Lorenzini / Creative Director working together on Ray Ban and Persol, 2013
“I've had the opportunity to work with Maggy in both a full time and freelance capacity. Maggy is a joy to work with and to know. When it comes to her work she is a true professional. She is optimistic, insightful, and a considerate creative partner. When there are opinions needed she gives them. When there are problems to solve she helps to solve them. Whenever there is a budget to be tweaked she reworks it. She is a problem solver and she is very good at doing so. I have had the honor of working with her before several times and I am looking forward to working with her again in the future. - Adrian Hilton / Creative Director working together on Converse and Powerade, 2010
"Maggy filled in for me as a freelance producer while I was on my honeymoon. I was delighted to return to the office to find that all of my projects were in better shape than I’d left them. Before she left, Maggy handed over a disk of thoroughly organized folders containing the details and files for everything that transpired in my absence. In this profession, it can be difficult to get away without work following you. Maggy managed everything seamlessly and helped make my honeymoon all the more relaxing." - Jerrod McMillian / Executive Producer at Marcus Thomas LLC, 2015
"Maggy is an inspiration to work with. Her love of art extends through all mediums, and she carries this to each project she touches. Her excitement for photography and illustration is contagious, and it spreads from shoots to creatives to producers. She is an invaluable asset to any agency, and to each project she works on." Veronica Reo / Art Producer who collaborated with Maggy at Y&R New York, 2010
"Maggy is a self starter. She has a true passion for the creative world and has immersed herself in it. Her intelligence allows her to deal with a variety of situations and she never runs from a problem. She is an amazing art buyer and great collaborator" Meghan DeBruler / Art Production Manager worked with Maggy at Ogilvy & Mather, 2002
