About me & my work:

I taught in the department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University and at Parsons The New School for Design. My research focuses on visual and virtual self-presentation, technology/human intersects, dating and inter-personal relationships, and happiness and well-being. I'm the founder of Sociology of Style, which takes an intelligent look at image and culture-related issues and offers holistic image consulting and life coaching services. I also created the Sociology of TV, which offers videos and white papers on the social significance of television media in public spaces. I'm an experienced consultant, expert, and qualitative researcher for agencies and brands, including Cisco, Samsung, DIRECTV, Converse, Avon, Coca-Cola, Lenovo, Tata Communications, SABMiller, Toyota, CableLabs, LG, and Pepsi. I'm also a frequent presenter and writer for such outlets as CNN, Bulletproof Executive, The Atlantic, The Huffington Post, eHow, and the Financial Times. I currently work and live between San Francisco and New York City.
