Ocean Pleasant is a 21-year-old entrepreneur and singer-songwriter. She got her start as Creative Director of Origin Magazine, a national best-seller that now touches millions of people as the go-to print publication for conscious culture. At 17, she started her own media platform, Real; a youth culture magazine that highlighted global issues for millennials. This year, she re-imagined the Real brand as a mobile app to help young people meet new friends and make an impact. She's a 2015 Thiel Fellow and Forbes 30 Under 30 List honoree of 2016.
Her music career started when she was serendipitously discovered by the frontman of SOJA (a Grammy-nominated band) while working in production on a national music tour with Michael Franti. Since then, she's performed for hundreds of thousands of people and released her debut EP, 'As You Are.'
