I’m Megan Gray and I love 3 things: my family, great design, and WordPress. (Ok, and all the people who share my love of WordPress). I’ve been designing for as long as I can remember, or since I got my first copy of Photoshop in the 90s, and professionally for nearly 10 years now. During that time, I’ve had the privilege of executing design strategies for clients including Johns Hopkins University, Hilton Hotels, Arlington Department of Public Health, and the public television series Roadtrip Nation.
Before I got serious about design, I was a writer and editor for Washington, DC newspapers, a marketing strategist for Johns Hopkins University, and a freelance WordPress designer. My diverse background in all aspects of creating and managing brands influences my unique approach to web projects, and I look forward to bringing that to the table at 10up.
My passion for making clients’ dreams a reality ultimately led me to WordPress, where I really believe anything is possible. Since becoming involved in the WordPress community a couple of years ago, I’ve been really fortunate to have met so many awesomely talented, generous people. I try to give back whenever the opportunity arises, from volunteering in support forums, to attending local Meetups, to supporting WordCamps— that’s another thing I love about 10up, how much time they dedicate to keeping WordPress #1.
I’m thrilled to be joining team 10up, and I look forward to helping this team expand its market with even more original creative initiatives. I believe in 10up’s “content management made easy” philosophy to my core and I can’t wait share some of the exciting efforts we have in store.
Editor’s Note from Jake: The first time I saw Megan’s portfolio and a sample of her writing, all presented in her own WordPress-powered website, I had to see if she would be interested in joining our team. During a series of conversations, her unwavering professionalism and clear enthusiasm for her trade shined through, and confirmed what her website suggested. I’m thrilled to welcome Megan to 10up, and can’t wait to see the outcome of her creativity and leadership.
