Megan is happiest when she is working with a group of people on a creative project that requires story-making technology and the humanizing power of humor. She has spoken about storytelling and digital content at IDEO, Talks@Google, University of California at Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, Designers + Geeks, The 3% Conference, Internet Summit, San Francisco State University and more.
She is deeply experienced with art, design, healthcare, and technology projects where she provides content and narrative strategy and a sensitive, lighthearted touch. Her work has aired on public radio stations across the country and on podcasts such as Inflection Point with Lauren Schiller and 51% on WAMC Northeast. Her voice can be heard in the intro of 99% Invisible's episode Ten Letters for the President.
By day, Megan works with clients such as Genentech, Roche, Hachette Audio (Theft by Finding by David Sedaris), GE Energy and GE Digital, Ear Hustle for Radiotopia, The Stoop, The Intersection, Southern Company, Jetty (AJ+), and more as a creative content strategist, digital multimedia producer, and storytelling facilitator.
By night, Megan is a producer for The Moth in the Bay Area, producing sold-out StorySLAMs as well as the GrandSLAM events at the historic Castro Theatre in San Francisco. She is also a mentor at Matter, a design-thinking accelerator for media startups.
An important part of Megan's understanding of digital content comes from her background in technology. Prior to Indie Thinking, Megan co-founded and was managing partner of Lokion, a technology company that specialized in complex business and consumer content and commerce projects for clients like The National Civil Rights Museum, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, FedEx, Scripps, Hewlett Packard, Nokia, the Memphis Grizzlies NBA team, and Hilton Hotels. She lives in the Bay Area with her partner, artist Les Stuck, and a belligerent and handsome tabby cat called Helliott.
