Meredith Stepien is an actor, comedian, musician, and content developer. She started working at the Adler Planetarium as an actor and Sky Show Presenter in 2015, and moved to content development in Guest Experience in 2017. On top of her work at the Adler, she’s also a core member of the viral Youtube theater company Starkid.
In 2016, she co-wrote the music for Firebringer; a musical that has over 4 million views on Youtube. She loves finding ways to educate through comedy, music, and art. Since the pandemic caused the Adler to close, she’s been able to utilize her silliness for online content to help keep the museum alive.
Though she’s devastated by the effects of the pandemic, she’s having a lot of fun throwing caution to the wind and trying new things.
