Maegan Amanda Carberry is a consultant to inspiring brands and individuals who want to stand for something while they stand out. 

She served as Arianna Huffington’s Chief of Staff in the early days of The Huffington Post, launched Variety’s Wilshire and Washington podcast about Hollywood and politics, registered hundreds of thousands of young people as Communications Director of Rock the Vote, and was the Founding Curator of Upworthy. She began her career as a reporter for The Chicago Tribune and has written for many esteemed publications. She appeared as a regular analyst for FOX Business with Neil Cavuto and CNN for OutFront’s Strike Team. Maegan has spoken for innovative organizations like the Paley Center for Media, and taught courses at USC's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. 

As circumstances continue to drastically alter the media business, Maegan continues to innovate in the sector. In partnership with Jonathan Englert of Sydney-based Andiron Group, Maegan has launched BREAKR, an international investigative news initiative. 

Maegan's most personal work is with birdbrain, a non-profit she founded with her mother, Dianna. The organization is a clothing brand that provides art therapy kits to people impacted by sexual trauma. The flagship birdbrain community showroom opened in Palm Springs, CA in 2017. The first pop up community showroom was held in Manhattan's Hudson Yards in April 2019 and continues to Los Angeles, Nashville, and more.

Maegan is a graduate of UCLA and Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism. Go Bruins! Grrrr Wildcats!


Maegan lives in Los Angeles with her cuuuute cats Cinna and Lee Alexander McQueen. If you can't find her, drive to Palm Springs and turn right. She's hiding behind huge sunglasses reading a novel by a pool. 


PRO TIPS: Don't ever ask her about the impending robot takeover or you'll be trapped for hours. And be sure to bring a Fountain Diet Coke to the meeting to impress her.

Keep up with Maegan on her blog. It's right here and it's riveting.
