LET HER SPEAK WAS INSPIRED BY THE WOMEN’S RISING MOVEMENT AND AN EXPERIENCE WHERE I WATCHED WOMEN’S VOICES BEING DROWNED OUT IN A SEA OF PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T LIKE WHAT THEY WERE HEARING.

LET HER SPEAK is THE DESIRE TO UNLEASH THE FEMININE VOICES OF COMPASSION AND EMPATHY THAT LIvE WITHIN ALL OF US, REGARDLESS OF OUR GENDER.


MY STORY

I have had an amazingly varied career. I’ve worked for the top companies in technology and entertainment. I have worked with global leaders advancing a compassionate movement. I have consulted with startups, produced events and co-founded an experience design agency.

My purpose has always been to bridge the artificial and psychological divides we often feel by designing immersive and deeply empathic businesses, experiences, strategies and events.

My hope is that my work invites individuals to drop deeper into themselves and communities to rise up together.

Prior to this moment, I spent years modifying my voice to fit-in or I spoke up and to face repercussions. I have been fired for being too outspoken. And I have been promoted for doing the exact same.

It hasn’t always been easy, and yet I know my path is to create openings where they haven’t previously existed.

I have been blessed to innovate in a variety of environments as an Experience Designer, Storyteller and Transformation Coach.

I have worked with individuals and teams to crafting impactful, inspiring and powerful communication messages, whether they are spoken, written or experienced through art, installation and events.  

I know what it feels like to not be heard; to wonder if I am a poor communicator, to feel a sense of competition with my female colleagues and hyper sexualization from my male colleagues. I have been in environments where I have failed by burying my voice and not trusting myself. It is from these experiences and being inspired by the rising we are doing together, that I have launched LET HER SPEAK to bring my purpose of bridging the divide by empowering individuals and teams through experiential empathy based training.

I believe systemic change is possible when we empower voices to change the narrative that has only worked for some of us, not all of us.

Where It All Began,

My career began at Microsoft where I developed prototypes to illustrate future technologies, presented on national and international stages with variety of executives including former CEO Bill Gates, directed the first High Definition Television footage, produced international events and received patents for innovative user experience designs.

It was at Microsoft that I learned how to tell creatively impactful stories. And I left Microsoft as I felt a calling to teach and inspire empathy.

As the Creative Director and Producer for Seeds of Compassion featuring His Holiness the Dalai Lama, I designed the brand experience and events that inspired compassionate action in hundreds of thousands of attendees and millions who tuned in digitally.

I have produced benefits concerts, multiple art exhibits, lead youth advocacy teams, managed a documentary film crew, presented on a variety of stages, taught at the University level and built interactive installations, all with the intention to create resonant connection.

As the Co-Founder and CEO of Revel Wolf Collective, I created an environmental and experience design agency from the ground up with a focus on place making where people felt a sense of belonging and empowered well being. 

Lastly,

I am in love with my collaborative partner and wife Revel Wolf, can’t get enough of the heart bursting joy of our lover dogs Ben and Shane, live to ski, play outdoors and spend quality time with Mother Nature.

I am deeply committed to working with people so that we all live our lives on-purpose, in love and in a fashion that feeds our souls and heals our earth.

With gratitude and love -
