I have been writing Connect with your Teens through Pop Culture and Technology since the beginning of 2008. This blog helps parents and other adults keep up with pop culture and technology as a way of bonding with teenagers. Parents can often seem to be behind the curve since whats “hot” in both technology and pop culture changes so rapidly. I came up for the idea for this blog because this was how I always had the best success bonding with my sons.
I have been a pop culture addict my entire life. I learned a great deal about technology through my previous careers which always kept me up-to-date on everything happening online. I write on topics that parents and teens can discuss and/or enjoy together. These topics are:
- video games
- social good
- Internet safety
I have two advanced degrees – a JD from NYU Law School (which I did not use for long) and an MLS from Southern Connecticut State University. I am the author of an eBook, published in February 2012, The Gamer Generation: Reaping the Benefits of Video Games and I gave a speech at an education conference on the benefits of video games in education. Before blogging (but after my short-lived law stint), I owned and ran a computer school for young kids and then became a law librarian and taught legal research at Hofstra Law School. I recently launched a second blog, Technology at Any Age, to expand my technology coverage.
I now live in New York City and hope to never leave. I am married and have two sons, whom I have always connected with through pop culture and technology.
