TEDx: Lessons in Digital Anthropology (2013)


From TEDx to Soho House and AIGA, I’ve had the opportunity to share insights on social media, youth culture, and brand building with the world’s most vibrant, innovative creative communities. In addition to engagements with corporate groups and agencies, I’ve contributed to event programming and taught workshops across the country for teams looking to up their game.

Whether you’re trying to get a grip on communications, discover new strategy tips and tricks, understand cultural trends or, better yet, learn how they apply to your business – I bring “real talk” and a fresh perspective that will leave attendees feeling energized, informed, and inspired.

Are you (or your client) in need of some serious direction? One of the best ways to get focused is to gather a group of people with different roles, backgrounds, and perspectives in a room to work it out. Face-to-face. Whiteboards. Brainstorming. True collaboration.

A long-term strategy engagement is not always the most efficient way of getting sh*t done. A workshop brings your team together to figure out the best approach and plan. You’ll get input from all of the stakeholders in real time and have fun in the process. Yes, fun!
