Daphne Medina is a film geek and sustainability professional focused on the ways in which the entertainment industry can help solve global social and environmental issues. She honed her skills in strategic planning and corporate social responsibility, as well as her expertise in the science of climate change and carbon accounting during her time in the M.B.A./M.S. program at University of Michigan’s Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise.

Hailing from Boston, she attended Boston University, graduating with B.A. in Political Science. When she has a free moment, she is probably trying a new seasonal recipe or catching up on all the movies and tv shows on her (very long) list.

From the impressionable age of 8, after witnessing the sweeping epic of ‘Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring’ for the very first time, Meagan Goodspeed knew that the Film and TV industry was the path she was meant to take. With a mission to escape her home state of Florida forever, Meagan attended Appalachian State University in NC to study Telecommunications. During her time there, she was actively involved with the university’s Solar Decathlon - an international competition where universities competed to build a net-zero energy home thus spawning her passion for sustainability. With a mission to escape the bible belt forever, she moved to NYC where she worked within the art department as a coordinator on TV series such ‘Teen Mom’, and also as a senior producer in the audio post industry. Meagan is excited to be combining her two passions into one at Earth Angel. When she’s not advancing her trash queen skills, she can be found in one of the many Bushwick dine-in theaters eating brunch and watching movies.

Elisa joins Earth Angel from Alejandra Alonso Rojas, a NYC-based clothing designer, where she was the Chief Operating Officer for over 5 years. As COO, she spent her time understanding supply chains and surrounded by fabrics, and through that work developed a passion for understanding the ways in which for-profit companies can implement sustainable practices to dramatically decrease their environmental impact. Elisa is originally from Madrid, Spain, where she was raised between the big city and the countryside, and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. Elisa enjoys traveling globally and imposing iron-clad (what her family refers to as dictatorial-style) rules at home on recycling and food waste.

Sully is the backbone of company morale, bringing one and a half years of strong expertise in cuddles and kisses. His sad eyes are sure to convince even the staunchest climate denier that recycling is important. He loves hanging out at the crafty table and playing in sprinklers!
