I'm a third-generation native of a storied, old borough in the Pennsylvania Wilds’ Allegheny Mountains.
For decades, I lived and worked along the Potomac River, in D.C.. These days, I find more inspiration in the forests of my “native altitude,” in the place my family's called "home" for more than 100 years. I create award-winning, multi-media content for audiences and clients, worldwide, including—Discovery Networks, National Geographic, universities, publishers, diplomats, and other individuals and organizations,
I value loved ones, honest conversation, mountain air, the woods, a good story, cooking time, clarity, natural remedies, preserving historic structures, a good dog, simplicity, peace, and sitting by the fire.
Recently, I've begun launching a creative, non-fiction series, called "Megan’s Mostly-True Stories," as well as a Blog, all of which you may find here, on my site. I hope you enjoy megansdesk.net, which I set up to show you some of the remarkable things that come across my desk.
