Co-founder & Partner 

Established in 2014, FRESH Speakers represents the next generation shaping 21st century thinking – and action – with fresh ideas and groundbreaking work.

For too long, speakers have derived authority from fancy titles, overhyped books, and relationships formed within elite institutions and events. This outdated and homogenous culture not only breeds boredom and myopic thinking, but also reinforces structural inequalities. FRESH works to ensure that all great speakers have a place at the podium.

Some of our clients include AOL's MAKERS, The Gates Foundation, The Aspen Institute, and UN Women.

Feministing is an online publication and community run by and for young feminists. For over a decade, Feministing has been offering sharp, uncompromising feminist analysis of everything from pop culture to politics, and inspiring young people to make real-world feminist change, both online and off. Columbia Journalism Review has said, "[Feministing] is head and shoulders above almost any writing on women's issues in mainstream media."
