For the past decade I’ve studied human connection, recently giving a TEDx talk titled "The Simple Cure for Loneliness," with more than three million views.

After my stint as a cast-member on MTV’s The Real World in 2008, I started studying Psychology, Emotional Intelligence, Body Language, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to track what makes humans tick, why we do what we do (like making crazy decisions to go on reality tv shows), and love who we love. I craved finding the answer to what creates a meaningful human experience.

I launched my career as a matchmaker and dating coach, quickly becoming known as The Female “Hitch” and catching the attention of outlets like AskMen, Fox, Daily Worth, ABC and more. I have since hosted and produced “The Art of Connection”, a weekly series on ABC4, and speak and lead workshops and events throughout the U.S.

What I offer —

  • Coaching

  • Speaking

  • Experience Design

  • Workshops

  • Group Facilitation

  • Ritual Design and Facilitation

  • Ceremony

  • Conscious Uncoupling (believe me, I know how woo-woo this sounds, but it’s absolutely transformative)

Baya has a rare ability to listen with intuition, strategize with smarts, and give feedback with actionable advice. Her attention to detail while seeing the bigger vision makes her an invaluable member of your “success team”!
