Megan Toenyes, pronounced without the "o" ala "Ten-yes", lives inside of a delirious computer that is most often located in Missoula, MT but frequently glitches through Los Angeles, CA and the whole World Wide Web as well. She's a jackalope of all things digital media and a mad machine of content creation, bringing a unique flare of visual artistry to every commercial or personal project she works on.

Megan graduated with a B.F.A in "Integrated Digital Media" from the University of Montana in 2013. After brief stints ice carving in California (not kidding) and slinging cocktails to the good people of Portland, Oregon, she returned to the last best place.
In Missoula, Montana she worked for Internet Guy, Hank Green, nerding out over awesome things and creating animations and designs for SciShow and SciShow Kids. She spent over 2 crucial years there, falling in love with the internet and learning how to successfully produce her own videos to YouTube. After SciShow she landed her own comedy/makeup show through Ripple Entertainment's "Snarled Network" called "Makeup Your Mood" in 2017. The show performed well on Snarled's sister channel "Hissyfit" so the company commissioned two other shows from Megan for the main Snarled channel called "Death Happens" (a funny yet informative show about death.) and "Monster Brain" (an art-therapy inspired illustration series) as well as vlogs, and a live draw-along series.
After working for Ripple Entertainment, Megan went on to create a freelancing business as a creative director, video editor, mixed media artist and animator in 2018. As a freelancer she's expanded her professional portfolio with graphic design and video related work produced for a variety of clients such as VidCon, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, Hank Green, Complexly, Lydia Loveless, Sanvello, GoldieBlox, Skybound, Big Tent Productions, and even Freddie Prinze Jr.
Today Megan is still enjoying the dynamic lifestyle of being a freelancer and looks forward to tackling new challenging projects in 2021. In her free time she can be found running by the river with her dog Guy, or pursuing on some new and absurd hobby (which is currently making fuzzy rugs and textiles). She also plans to return to her YouTube channel soon to document her journey designing and tufting rugs.
