My name is Megan. I’m a Los Angeles-based fashion journalist and commerce writer looking for in-house involvement within a creative team. Between my academic background and work experience, I've gained a strong sense of the luxury market. I know how to communicate brand values through editorial writing, digital marketing, and public relations. And cover a wide range of subjects in my writing (from travel, film to interior design) for digital publications and company newsletters.
