Named one of Portland Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 for 2019, Lindsey E. Murphy has been called a “visionary,” “ force of nature,” “breath of fresh air,” and is said to “light up the darkest corners of any room.” This may be because she believes in and strived toward a world full of joy, fun, healed hearts, and people empowered and released to truly live out the fullness of their lives. These are the values that inform every single thing she does.
She is the award-winning creator + host of The Fab Lab With Crazy Aunt Lindsey, YouTube’s most beloved kids science web series that takes everyday science concepts and turns them into fabulous DIY projects children can do at home with their families. Since launching in 2010, the show has garnered partnerships with the likes of Scientific American Magazine, the New York Academy of Sciences, been published in various national family magazines, and crowdfunded nearly $100,000 for independent production in 2019.
Lindsey is a regular guest on television shows, conference stages, and has been invited to speak at places like Harvard University and Google Inc. to give talks on such topics as creative media in science communications, Diversity in STEM, fundraising, entrepreneurship, being brave, having courage, branding and marketing in the digital age. She is the four-time livestream host of TEDxPortland and has hosted two travel web series for Travel Oregon and Wieden+Kennedy’s On She Goes, Seasons 1 and 2.
Before jumping feet-first into full time business ownership in 2017, Lindsey spent more than 15 years in digital media, marketing, advertising, and business development, having started her career at MTV Networks and spent time at Nike and Wieden+Kennedy. As the CEO of Murph Media Co., Lindsey specializes in making content from the heart, digital consulting, audience + creative development.
Lindsey attended New York University concentrating on Chinese Language + Culture Studies (zài 1-10 de fànwéi nèi…wǒ shuō pǔtōnghuà hěn kěpà) and holds a dual Associates Degree from the County College of Morris in Liberal Arts, History + Literature and Media Studies. Born in Morristown, New Jersey, and professionally raised in NYC corporate hustle and bustle, Lindsey moved to Portland Oregon in 2013 with no job, knowing no one, and exactly $.47 in her bank account. You should email her to grab a coffee some Friday soon where she will gladly tell you the rest of that story.
