About Me

Hi, I’m Megan. Thanks for dropping by. I’m a writer with a bent toward cultural commentary and analysis. I write about the interesting place where media and culture meet, and how they influence and shape each other. From detailed academic research to offbeat stories about the world around me, I hope to entertain and enlighten you about the culture that shapes us. I have thing for horror movies and have been known to known to watch a whole lot of them.

My daytime hat is that of an Instructional Designer. I dabble in web design and cake decorating. In that order.

Recent articles of mine include an analysis of gender roles in those quirky classroom films of the 1950s and 60s. Besides cultural/media research, I am available for freelance engagements. Contact me for more information.
