Sydney Hamm is an American actress, live show host, internationally represented print & runway model, and social justice advocate. She is best known for her leading role in the 2022 Lifetime movie, Swim Instructor Nightmare—and she is so excited to be returning to SXSW for the second year in a row as a Porsche panel co-host.
Sydney has also spent significant time garnering experience behind the scenes as a writer, producer, and creative director. With a writing and research-heavy bachelor's degree in Human Development from California State University of Long Beach (where she graduated with honors), Sydney has put her knowledge to use in her various roles for such projects as The Regard Breakdown Podcast (associate producer, writer, and fact-checker), streaming service AUX Live (on-camera host, writer, fact-checker), and many more.
