Refinery29

Founder, Co-CEO

I founded Refinery29 along with my three co-founders, with the goal of building a destination to celebrate independent style and help people discover the world’s greatest independent designers and makers. Today, Refinery29 is re-inventing the global media landscape. Reaching over 145 million people globally across a variety of platforms including web, mobile, social and video, R29 is now the largest digital lifestyle media company in the United States with 24/7 content in a multitude of categories—from fashion to politics. Every day, our mission is to fearlessly inspire confidence and celebrate individuality in people everywhere. Currently, I focus on corporate strategy and direction for the company’s product, marketing and content.
