Who Am I?  I'm Megan, you can call me Meg if you'd like. Born in California, raised in North Carolina, currently living in Seattle.

 What’s a RightTernes? My last name is actually Ter-NES, but laziness and the sake of a pun has led me to mosey my last name to a drawly, southern "turns." It's a classic case of if you can't beat 'em, make it a pun. 

This site is both a portfolio of my work and a place for irregular and infrequent updates about music I'm listening to, places I go and other fodder. 

 I am a Label manager at Suicide Squeeze Records and former social media manager at Sasquatch! Music Festival. My experience includes media relations, promotions, and DIGitAL marketing for Sub Pop, DoStuff Media, Neumos, LADYKILLER, and Merge Records.

I attempt to honor the ever-growing record collection in my studio by taking them out for DJ sets as one-half of Sonic Squeeze with KEXP DJ Abbie Gobeli. Past sets have included The W Seattle, Freakout Fest, Shout Your Abortion, and Herbivore Botanicals.

You can follow me on Instagram and Twitter at @rightternes.
