Meet Our CEO & Founder

Michelle Khouri is a podcast executive producer and audio entrepreneur. Michelle founded and singlehandedly bootstrapped FRQNCY Media in 2018 with the vision of making the audio industry inclusive and accessible to all voices who want to bring good into this world. She is a first generation Colombian American who comes from a long line of entrepreneurs, musicians, and activists. Get to know her.

Culture and Purpose Come First

FRQNCY is a purpose-driven company. We value alignment, intention, diversity, kindness, determination, and clarity. Every new member of our team shares our same values with equal fervor. We unabashedly work every day to dismantle toxic patriarchal systems, including  Capitalism and white supremacy. You’ll experience that in our day-to-day conversations as we bring to the surface ego-driven, racist, or misogynistic programming that must be called out in order to be healed.

We focus on our people before all else. Which means that all part-time positions are built to open doors for future expansion within the company. If you want to be a part of a company that is changing what it means to work, we should talk.

Oh, and we value joy. We wake up every day wondering how it is we got lucky enough to spend our days surrounded by compelling stories, cradled in beautiful sounds, and entrenched in opportunities to whip up innovative new pieces of audio for our clients.

You will manage production workflows, timelines, and quality checks for FRQNCY clients, who range from multinational brands to global icons to high-growth startups to small local businesses, making sure every client gets the same level of care and service.

  • Provide nuanced quality checks on all episode cuts that encourage consistently smooth cuts, high quality mastering, artful sound design, and tactful pacing

  • Schedule in-studio and remote sessions, tape syncs, and mailing of equipment boxes
