Hi, I'm Megan


Let's create something engaging together.

SCROLL DOWN

Hi, I'm Megan


Let's create something engaging together.

I'm A brooklyn-based editor, writer, and translator with a penchant for literary translation and a prized red pen. 

No matter what I'm working on, I make sure each and every piece stands out from the crowd. Whether it’s creating viral quizzes, writing heartfelt stories, or translating novels, I pride myself on my ability to recognize and articulate a distinct voice for every project. 

I’ve built my career in a variety of industries, mostly in small companies where I was not just an editor but a writer, project manager, and translator. And while writing is my passion, editorial is my bread and butter. Keeping on top of projects and making sure the finished product is polished, cohesive, and engaging is one thing I do best.

Read on to learn about my professional past; if you have a way you think we could work together, I'd love to hear from you
