Samantha Murphy

Founder, Happily Contended

Melbourne

Samantha grew up on a tour bus performing in her family’s band. She says, "Traveling across four countries gives you an open-minded approach towards combining creativity and business that the world doesn’t necessarily embrace. Being an entrepreneur enables me to apply the breadth of my skills creatively and strategically without feeling like I have to dial myself down."

A Graduate of the TechStars Incubator Program in Boulder with her web series The Highway Girl, Samantha likes to create at the intersection of Technology and the Arts. A podcaster since 2004, for her it’s all about the story.

In 2014 she led content for J. Walter Thompson, where she worked with brands like Mattel, Treasury Wine Estates, and beyond blue.

Ever the entrepreneur, Samantha left JWT to start her second company, Happily Contented. Her first screenplay, The Hidden Life No More serves as its prototype. Virtual Reality short film The Meeting: An excerpt from The Hidden Life No More, is both her directorial debut and the company’s first release.
