Boy, do I wish I could tell 13-year-old Meg that I was writing this bio right now for the radio stations I grew up listening to. How the heck did this happen?!

When I’m not talking to myself or writing about my favorite city, you can find me reading books I snagged from those cute little free libraries, kayaking in Casco Bay, and dancing to the Bee Gees. If you like laughing at silly things, eating good food, or staring at the wall, we’ll get along. Let’s connect!
