Megan Dattoria

3D Specialist

Borne of polygons and fire, Megan joined the Smithsonian with a background in 3D modeling and traditional metalsmithing.  After receiving her degree in Interdisciplinary Object Design from Towson University in 2012, she started with Smithsonian Exhibits (formerly the Office of Exhibits Central) making models and artifact mounts for exhibits.  In 2015, Megan broke the LCD ceiling and joined the 3D team’s “laser cowboys” as the first cowgirl.  Since then, she finds fulfillment digitizing the Smithsonian’s collections and supporting the broadening of access to America’s treasures.
