Erin McGrady Profile Picture.jpg

Erin is content creator with a love for photography. She is also a Squarespace web design specialist. Three of the sites she has designed have been featured by Squarespace.

She joined Google’s #teampixel in 2018 and was recently selected to attend the #teampixelsummit in Marfa, Texas. She was also one of the finalists in 2016's #FindYourPark expedition with the National Park Foundation and her participation in that adventure has led to other creative work for brands that include Aramark, Lee Jeans, Forsake, BlackRapid and Columbia Sportswear. 

"Erin is a consummate professional with infectious passion, drive, and curiosity. I had the pleasure of getting know and work with Erin during the 2016 Find Your Park Expedition. Her artistic talent is self-evident, but I was especially impressed by her ability and interest in fostering inclusive community with every person she met. Erin is the ideal collaborator and I hope we have the opportunity to work together again soon."
