My name is Megan and I’m a Chicago native turned willing Iowan. For the past decade I’ve called Des Moines home, and as a semi-recent graduate of Drake University, I use my passion for digital media for storytelling of all kinds.
I started Olio in Iowa in 2012, originally as a way to get out and explore my new hometown. But along the way, the blog has become a home for all of my roadside adventures and a way to share the stories that make me love roadtripping.
So why “olio”?
Olio (ˈō-lē-ˌō)—a miscellaneous mixture or collection
That’s what this blog started as and, in my experience, what all the best adventures consist of.
Drop me a line
Want to get in touch with me? I’m always looking for new collaborations and would love to hear from you. Even if it’s just to share your favorite small-town ice cream shop (but seriously, please send me these).
