Mariel Waloff discovered her passion for journalism while documenting a Catholic activist movement in central Mexico. She worked as a freelance multimedia producer and photographer for several years before coming to the J-School, regularly contributing audio slideshows and videos to a variety of publications. She taught photography and multimedia production at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and through various residency programs in public schools, nursing homes and hospitals. Her stories have covered a range of topics: the slow demise of a struggling fishing town in coastal Maine; the life of a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism (a group that reenacts medieval times); and the experience of an ex-gang member turned monk in a Cambodian Buddhist temple in South Philadelphia.
