Writer, Speaker, Queen Bee
I have been a writer, entrepreneur and communicator since the day I created my first handwritten newspaper as a way to keep in touch with my cousins across the country, and coerced them into throwing lavish talent shows during the summer (and charging our relatives to attend!) when I was 8 years old.
I am the Queen Bee and co-founder of KidzVuz. KidzVuz is a media company focused on user-generated videos by and for tweens where they create reviews and comment about the products and media they love via the web or our mobile app. I am a monthly contributor to Mashable.com where I write about family technology and parenting. I am the founder and co-host of The Blogging Angels Podcast, a weekly radio show about women in social media and the blogosphere. For the last 5 years I have been a blogger and freelance writer. This is my personal blog, Beccarama, where I write about parenting, travel, technology, education, and all things NYC.
My blog posts have been nationally syndicated through McClatchy/Tribune and in The Washington Post.
My side passion is education advocacy. As the Co-President of the PTA at my twin daughters’ NYC public elementary school I spent way too many hours trying to bring parents and teachers together and raise money and ideas for the school, without embarrassing my daughters. I was the 2011 New York State Delegate to Parenting Magazine’s Mom Congress on Education and Learning, and was featured as a White House Champion of Change for Education.
As an expert in the kids and tweens space, I frequently speak on radio, TV, print and at conferences about raising kids in the digital age. I am on the Parent Advisory Board of Kidzania – a multinational theme park and entertainment company. Additionally, I have worked with brands such as Microsoft, The Children’s Place, J&R Electronics, Motorola, Audible.com, Duane Reade and non-profits such as RBaby Foundation, One Foundation and Blick Art Room Project to effectively and creatively promote their company and/or causes.
I am available to cover media events (especially if great food and fun locations are involved) discuss marketing opportunities and consult on social media strategy. And if you’d like to sponsor me for a conference or send me on an around the world adventure I will give you my utmost attention. I may even put down my iphone and stop tweeting while taking to you.
