About Morgan

Hi! My name is Morgan...

but most of my friends call me Merg or Mo. Originally from Upstate New York, I finished my graphic design degree in 2016 at Drexel University in Philadelphia. 

I happened upon graphic design accidentally. Growing up building steam engines and model rockets with my dad, I always assumed I would be an engineer. Then, In my Junior year of high school, I couldn't fit an english class on the literary inspirations for Voldemort in my schedule (still sad about this, but it was for the best). I ended up taking graphic design on a whim, thinking maybe it would somehow help me with engineering... but I knew by the end of my first class that I wanted to be a graphic designer. Suddenly my love of problem solving and creating things met my love of art. 

Fast forward six years, and here I am in the real world. I've learned how to not procrastinate (the hard way), developed a passion for photography, studied abroad in Cambodia, got my first real job and moved to Maine, and met some amazing friends and designers along the way.
