Hey, I'm Asha!

Los Angeles, California

I am an author, TEDx speaker and founder of GirlTalkHQ.com. I was born in the UK, raised in Australia, and now reside in Los Angeles, California. I have spent almost 2 decades creating, producing and hosting content for networks such as MTV, MSN.com, Disney, ABC, Nickelodeon, Fox, Nine Network Australia and more.

I have delivered keynote addresses for organizations such as Accenture, UCLA and March for Moms, and moderated panels for UN Women, Mount Saint Mary’s University, EmpowHer Institute, Women’s Voices Now Film Festival, rePRO Film Fest, and Continuum Collective. I am a recipient of the Awesome Without Borders grant from the Harnisch Foundation, the 2022 Studio IX Mother Proect Grant, and the 2022 Creative Power Award.

Advocacy and activism are very important to me, and I like to find ways to combine my passions with my professional talents. I currently host the rePRO Film Podcast interview series for the rePRO Film Fest and am a board member of the Religious Coalition for Reproduction Choice (RCRC) since 2021.

Throughout my work, I like to focus on reproductive rights, gender equality, and the representation of women in media. I am passionate about empowering women, girls and femmes to take up space, raise their voice and share their story with the world.
