A bi-coastal costume designer, Megan graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a B.F.A in theatre and has since designed for feature films, short films, television and theatre.
A recipient of the Robert L.B. Tobin Director-Designer award, Megan's designs have been praised as “lived in” and “iconic”, with a “refined sartorial palette”. She appreciates the complexity of costume design, working in tandem with the world of the piece and character to create a cohesive and affecting look for a film.
Some of her designs can be seen in films "The Curse of La Llorona" (Newline) and the upcoming "The Wedding Year" (Lakeshore).
Her festival films "Southside with You" (Sundance), Unexpected (Sundance), "Saturday Church" (Tribeca) and "American Fable" (SXSW) have all enjoyed theatrical runs and can now be seen online.
Last year her "complex and stylish" designs for "Slice" (A24), were widely praised for their "risk-taking and bold" look.
Megan is a represented by the Gersh Agency and is a member of CDG Local 892.
In addition to her filmmaking career she also works as an installation artist and photographer, with work that has been displayed in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Houston, and New York City. You can view a selection of her art work here.
