Meg's documentary subjects read like a who's who of the underworld: Somali pirates, BDSM porn stars, crystal meth kingpins, and high-end call girls. She likes to explore controversial issues from an unorthodox viewpoint. Meg received an MFA in Documentary Film from Stanford University and is currently working on a documentary about the Middle East.
