TEDxStanford 2016: Robyn Sue Fisher

A life making ice cream & defying the status quo

When she graduated from Stanford Graduate School of Business, Robyn Sue Fisher had to choose between two distinctly different career paths: Special Agent for the FBI or Ice Cream Maker. She chose the latter, deciding to craft her job around joy. Now nine years later, the ice cream company she started out of a little red wagon with a machine she developed in a basement workshop is flourishing. Fisher shares what she has learned about invention, the art (and science) of ice cream, and living in the present.

Robyn Fisher is the Founder and Chief Brrrista of Smitten Ice Cream. Inspired by her lifelong love of ice cream, Robyn spent several years inventing Brrr™, her patented ice cream churner that uses liquid nitrogen to freeze each scoop to-order, using only freshest and purest ingredients. From launching on a Radio Flyer® wagon on the streets of San Francisco in 2009, Smitten has grown to six shops in the Bay Area and Southern California.
