tech speaker + consultant
Previously featured in:
Hi. I’m Alex. I’m an artist/speaker who focuses on the intersection between technology, anthropology and philosophy. I don’t just ask what will be “next” in tech, I ask why?
My focus is on social technology specifically (i.e. social media, texting, memes etc.); how it changes our social environments thus our decisions and ultimately our lives.
I speak at universities, companies and organizations that need support understanding how these behavioral changes effect our careers, relationships and happiness.
I also consult with companies seeking to avoid being ignored by millennials on the internet by providing creative strategy & brand clarity to build quality emotional connections with ideal customers.
In April 2018 I wrote a book for frustrated artists/creatives struggling with social media called “RESONATE": For Anyone Who Wants To Build an Audience”.
In December 2018 I released a mini-documentary called “Attention For Sale” or “ATTN4$” about the harmful social consequences of ad-business models.
Founded (and later sold) popular female lifestyle brand BOSSBABE in 2018.

A bit of my personal background…
I’m from Brooklyn, New York but I’ve pretty much been bicoastal my entire life, spending time between New York and the Bay Area (currently in Brooklyn now). I’ve been using the internet since I was two. My dad is in technology which had a huge influence on me growing up. I love to write poetry and personal essays. It is my passion for writing that led me to be more sensitive about some of the negative consequences we are facing via tech. My biggest influences are Neil Postman, Marshall McLuhan, Alan Watts and Steve Jobs.
