Megan most frequently wears the labels “motion designer”, “video editor”, and “art director", but her artistic work is a culmination of years spent embarking on curious adventures in makeup humor, performance ice carving, surreal photography/design, poodle illustration, project coordination, filmmaking and more.
Toenyes, pronounced without the "o" ala "Ten-yes", lives inside of a delirious computer located in Missoula, MT but frequently glitches through Los Angeles, CA and the whole World Wide Web. She's an ambitious 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.

Bringing rhythm to the chaos since 1991.

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 in-house for SciShow and SciShow Kids. She spent over two crucial years there, falling in love with the internet and learning how to successfully produce her own videos to YouTube. After SciShow, she created the comedy/makeup series "Makeup Your Mood" in 2017 via Ripple Entertainment's "Snarled Network". The show's success lead to two more commissioned shows on the main "Snarled" channel: "Death Happens" and "Monster Brain", alongside vlogs and a live draw-along series. 
After working for Ripple Entertainment, Megan continued her freelancing career as an art director, motion designer and video editor in 2018. Her diverse portfolio grew to include design and video-related work for a wide range of clients such as GIPHY, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, Hank Green, Complexly, National Geographic, Peter Jones Productions, and more. 
After furthering her animation education at The School of Motion and receiving two advanced animation certificates (Advanced Expressions in After Effects and Advanced 2D Animation), she continues to explore the possibilities of animation/design. Between March and September 2023, she served as Interim Creative Director at Complexly, where she managed a department of animators and sound designers while helping the company reevaluate the long-term scope of the role during a period of growth and transition. Megan is still designing and overseeing graphics for digital productions and is even working on co-producing her own documentary short about her friend Gus and his dog-hiking business.
Whenever she isn't working on a video or art project, she can be found jogging by the Clark Fork River with her giant schnoodle named Guy, or scouring small-town antique stores for hidden treasures with her partner, Andrew.
