The Story Whisperers

Robin Gelfenbien kicked off her career behind the wheel of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. Today, she is the Host and Creator of the critically-acclaimed storytelling series, Yum’s the Word, that features her homemade ice cream cakes. The show has been named a New York Times and Time Out New York Critics’ Pick, and CBS hailed it as one of the “5 Best Storytelling Series in NYC.” She has told stories on PBS, at The Moth, Mortified, The Kennedy Center and RISK!, and was a Featured Speaker at New York Social Media Week for a session on storytelling and business.

As a Creative Director/Copywriter, she has spent over two decades creating compelling stories for Colgate, Raisinets, Bertolli, SundanceTV, Vera Wang, Nikon and more. She has also worked at VaynerMedia, Ogilvy, Y&R, McCann, among others developing digital campaigns for their clients.

Robin has a B.S. degree in Marketing & Television/Radio/Film - Writing from the S.I. Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University. She’s the proud aunt of four nieces and nephews who affectionately call her “Achoo.” Naturally, there’s a story behind that nickname. www.robingelfenbien.com
