Our Core Team

Daryl Oh

Founder and CEO

Daryl left a successful career in fast-fashion to pursue her dream as a freelance photographer. In the pursuit of her personal fulfillment she encountered a systemic problem; options for creatives, like herself, to work outside of corporate structures are few and inaccessible to most.

Recognizing that communal resources make alternatives paths to success attainable, she founded Holyrad Studio. We all  deserve the option to bet on ourselves regardless of circumstance.

Saskia de Borchgrave

Head Producer

Saskia left the Film and TV Department at Tisch when she began freelancing and realized the education system was failing to teach students how to monetize their craft. Her work at Holyrad tackles the gaps in information in creative freelancing to help Members better understand their worth and navigate the industry.

She has helped numerous Members secure some of their biggest budgets, and as she continues to acquire clients for Holyrad's Agency she ensures that even those with less to spend work within the parameters that are fair for the freelancer.

Elena Franco

Research + Development Director

Growing up with dyslexia, Elena never fit into any boxes. Despite not learning how to read until the age of twelve, she graduated cum laude from law school and has joined Holyrad as the head of research and development.

As somebody who is very passionate about academia, research and societal issues, working with creatives to build a system that empowers everyone to succeed, in turn rewrites the narrative that you are valuable because of your experience, not despite it.

We all deserve a seat at the table.
