Hi Friends,

My name is Meredith Ogilvie and welcome to my blog! I went to journalism school at Northwestern University (Medill) but I would say traditional news isn’t really for me. I have spent most of my professional career working in the entertainment industry in Chicago. First as a PA, then an assistant then as a coordinator for the art department.

Two years ago I left the local 476 Studio Mechanics Union to focus on writing and creating. From my interests in cooking to the way I style my clothes I invite you to take this magic carpet ride with me as I focus on my writing career and living a balanced life.

The blog is called Made In Hyde Park because it’s basically the best neighborhood in Chicago. Duh 🙂 But truth be told I am considering a name change. Keep you posted!!

Currently I work in administration at the Not for Profit television station CAN TV (If you have cable you can find us on 19, 21, 27, 36, 42. Before that I had a terrible experience working for a community news paper – the articles were pretty good though. You can follow the link below the check them out!


As I find my inner bloggers voice please please please feel free to shoot me an email or comment on my site as I want this to be a very interactive endeavor.

XOXO Always,
