For the past decade, I’ve studied relationships and human connection, most recently giving one of the most-viewed TEDx talks of all time titled "The Simple Cure for Loneliness", with ~3.7 million views. 

After my time as a cast-member on MTV’s The Real World in 2008, I craved finding the answer to what creates a meaningful human experience, which led me to study Psychology, Emotional Intelligence, Body Language, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).

I specialize in creating experiences where people enter a different world; whether that's designing a ritual to grieve the loss of a relationship or a dinner party to inspire your guests to unlock dormant sides of themselves.

I’ve been featured on outlets like Fox, ABC, AskMen, Daily Worth, and more, host “The Art of Connection”, a weekly series on ABC4, and speak and lead workshops nationwide.
