Meredith Chapman

Creative Content Manager

A Parsons School of Design grad, Meredith represented high-end photographers as a talent agent. Ultimately, her crafty soul had other plans for her. She’s been the voice behind our team’s customer response efforts, while onboarding JamMasters, and even teaching some of our workshops herself! Her slight obsession with clothing and accessories (it’s genetic) means that Meredith is constantly shopping in her own closet for what she can reuse, rehab and recycle, with the help of her trusty sewing machine.
