Meagan was great to work with! She was very independent, prompt, and friendly. She took photos of our property and did an excellent job.

I had the best time at this Hostel! The staff were so lovely and Ryan was a great host. He gave me very clear instructions and was always available if I had questions. My job was to photograph the hostel for the website. I was able to work on my own time which I loved. Would come back anytime. I made a video about my experience in the hostel & working for the hostel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeO_k-g9hP4&t=1s

About me as an author

Hey I'm Meg! I caught the travel bug at 19 and haven't been able to stop. While I do work full time now, my job allows me a lot of freedom for wonderful adventures around the world. I am extroverted, organized and love to capture my experiences through video & photography.

Background

Education

I graduated with a degree in Motion Image Design in Edmonton, Alberta. I have worked as a full time videographer since the day I graduated. Working primarily in news, entertainment & education sectors.

I am currently studying business with a focus on the hospitality industry.

Work experience

Aside from my 13 years of Videographer experience, I have also founded a clothing company. I worked as Director of Marketing for the company for 3 years before being bought out so I can pursue my love of travel. I am very interested in real estate and own several investment properties that I have renovated myself.

Before working as a videographer, all my jobs were in customer service. Primarily working in coffee shops, I loved spending my days socializing with people.

Travel experience

Ever since I booked my first solo trip to New Zealand at age 19, I have been hooked on travelling. I have been all over North America, New Zealand and 14 countries in Europe (some multiple times!) I have travelled solo, and I have travelled in large groups. I love the freedom that travel brings and can't wait to do more.
