So basically we’ve connected the world through technology that makes us feel more disconnected than ever before. Something’s not adding up.

I annoy entrepreneurs, marketers, designers & artists to think about how tech can be more ethical and human-friendly.

I speak at universities, companies and organizations that need support understanding how the behavioral changes caused by social tech effect business, relationships and happiness.

I also consult with companies who are willing to challenge themselves and learn how to communicate with millennial and gen-z audiences effectively (because it is different)!

My Story:

I got my start as an entrepreneur in 2014 and founded a wildly popular female lifestyle brand that went viral on instagram and became a six-figure business within a year (which I later sold in 2018). Since then I’ve published a book for frustrated artists/creatives struggling with social media called “RESONATE": For Anyone Who Wants To Build an Audience”.

I also produced a mini-documentary called Attention For Saleor “ATTN4$” about the harmful social consequences of ad-business models.

And lastly, I’ve built a personal brand with an online readership of over 22,000+ passionate artists, thinkers and entrepreneurs. My Youtube channel and newsletter is where I send fresh thoughts and ideas about the effects of the social internet.

Here are some of my most popular videos:

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.
