earned a B.A. in Psychology and Communication Arts and a B.S. in
Education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her high-tech
career evolved in the primordial swamp known as Silicon Valley.
In 1990, after teaching sixth grade for three years, Meg joined
an educational software company, Earthquest Inc. (Palo Alto, CA),
and became Director of Product Development. With Earthquest she
conceived, designed and programmed four edutainment products. Ready
to take on the challenges of sole proprietorship, Meg started Opposable
Thumb Digital and developed computer-based training modules, corporate
product-launch support materials, digital magazines and websites
for clients like Hewlett-Packard, Visa, Exxon and Steve Wozniak.
In 1996, she
was enticed to join Poppy Tyson Interactive Inc. (San Francisco,
CA) as Director Of Programming and Web Development. This is where
Meg discovered her left brain skills by taking on the management
of a department of sixteen fellow geeks as well as project management
responsibilities of high profile and technically complex projects
such as Sony Entertainment's PlayStation website. But, alas, Meg
missed the design creativity associated with getting pixel poop
under one's finger nails and restarted Opposable Thumb Digital so
she could return to graphic design, interface design and programming.
Like all good
VDDI employees, Meg went virtual and left Nashville and moved Opposable
Thumb Digital to Cambridge, MA. But, the need for a change in hemipheres
became too strong and so now Meg calls Melbourne Australia home.
focuses on website and graphic design and website maintenance.
