Meg or Megan (she responds to both), grew up in Kansas City, Mo. surrounded by her extended family. Curious and artistic even as a child, her parents supported her creative passions and enrolled their daughter in as many art classes as they could. As a teen (and budding fashionista) she developed a minor obsession with magazines. Nothing has changed there.
A graduate of the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri, Meg studied advertising and magazine journalism. After college, she worked as the design editor at The Observer Media Group, in Sarasota, Fla. Her next job – senior designer at Hallmark Cards – took her back to Kansas City. After spending five years at Hallmark, she moved to Washington, D.C., where she started working as a full-time blogger, consultant and artist.
Meg started blogging in 2007 as a way to collect inspiration online. Having come from a family of small business owners, she trusted her entrepreneurial instincts and in 2011 decided to turn her blog into a business.
Originally launched as MIMI+MEG, a fashion, interiors, and art blog, the content evolved as Meg evolved. Now Meg Biram — The Edit, the site reaches thousands of readers daily and has grown to include stories chronicling (some of) Meg’s personal life and business forays. She spends a lot of time (maybe too much time) curating and creating content for her blog.
Meg has been featured in The Washington Post, Washingtonian Magazine, Rue Magazine, KCMagazine, and Refinery29. She has worked and/or collaborated with companies such as kate spade new york, Crate+Barrel, CB2, Macy’s, Elva Fields, High Point Market, Thomasville, Drexel Heritage, Joss & Main, Kendra Scott Jewelry and more.
Meg’s passion for teaching, combined with her expert knowledge in social media, blogging, and online marketing and branding has helped her grow the consulting arm of her business. She regularly works as a consultant for advertising agencies, small business owners, bloggers, and anyone in need of an online image guru.
Meg has spoken at Altitude Design Summit, DCWeek’s Fashion Panel, The George Washington University’s Women in Business Conference, and at her ongoing BLOG BIZ BUZZ seminars hosted in various cities across the United States.
Itching to return to her artsy, free-spirited roots, Meg, a trained graphic designer, recently decided to bump MAKING ART to the top of her ever-growing priority list. She now dedicates more time to painting and selling abstract work in her art shop.
