About the Founder

Cowry & Clay founder, Shirah Dedman, is a licensed attorney who found herself frustrated by corporate culture, which motivated her to shift the trajectory of her career.


Since graduating from law school and passing the California State Bar, she's had a diverse career spanning many different industries and job types.


While working in the entertainment industry, she held positions at William Morris Agency, DirectTV and Paramount Pictures. That was before her creative nature and passions for storytelling and health led her to pursue independent filmmaking and a radically new professional path.


Her filmmaking efforts culminated in producing and directing the full-length documentary, Follow the Drinking Gourd, which screened at several film festivals and is streaming on KweliTV.


From the corporate world to independent filmmaking; from a masters degree in Food and Agricultural Law to freelance writing; from sales to  Securities Law. Constantly curious and always ready to reskill, Shirah began a journey into blockchain and cryptocurrency.


Now, Shirah uses her breadth of knowledge to provide entrepreneurs strategies they need to grow and thrive.
