Out of town for App Camp for Girls, Mug Shots, and more

Hi all! I’m going to be in San Francisco for about a week, which means I won’t be as active about scheduling new clients. I might even skip recording Steady; it all depends on whether I can easily find a podcasting space in San Francisco. I’m an optimist, though—I’ll pack my mic! :)

As you probably know, I’ll be having a Mug Shots event on June 9 from 3:30-5:30. As of right now, I have exactly *one* spot left—move fast if you want dibs! :)

What you may not know is that I’ll also be in town to represent a volunteer cause I’m very passionate about. App Camp for Girls is a fantastic organization, and we’re having a huge fundraiser bash, plus some other networking activities here and there. If you’d like to read a bit more about my work with them, you can check out this blog post! Or if you want to cut to the chase, you can donate to our Indiegogo campaign. Every comment, share, and $5 contribution really does help!

Note that this is a frizzy exhausted AC4G pic—I will make you look SO MUCH BETTER if you come to Mug Shots! :)

This is a frizzy tired AC4G pic—I will make you look SO MUCH BETTER if you come to Mug Shots!

I’ll be back in action the week of June 15th—I look forward to tackling your comments, questions, and pleas for appointments with me then. Have a great week, and say hi if you see me around WWDC!

San Francisco Mug Shots on June 9!

We’re doing it! We’re having Mug Shots in San Francisco on Tuesday, June 9th, from 3:30-5:30 PM, at an awesome outdoor patio in walking distance from all the main WWDC action. It’s a mere $129 (plus whatever you consume) per person for a fun happy hour that’s ridiculously cheap compared to a full portrait session. Email […]

Dating apps on Apple Watch

main

I got an Apple Watch because I’m a big dork, and I was really excited to be an early adopter of this new product. (I know smartwatches have existed for ages, but I’m deep in the Apple ecosystem so I wasn’t that interested in offerings from other companies.) But in secret, I also got it […]

A mini online dating TV roundup

Linking out because their embed code is so angry.

Today is the day my Apple Watch is supposed to get delivered! I can’t WAIT to make you all some videos about how to turn off or better manage annoying dating app notifications. But since it’s not here yet, we’ll have to settle for this other blog post instead. :) Burger King’s recent Chicken Fries commercial […]

Email Debt Forgiveness Day… for online dating?

Do any of y’all listen to the podcast Reply All? (If not, you totally should start!) It’s a delightfully geeky, entertaining, well produced, and insightful show, started by a guy who left NPR and started a podcast about starting up a podcast company. This is that company’s first podcast. (Yeah, take your time parsing that […]

WWDC Mug Shots

Some of you know about Mug Shots, my events to help online dating clients get better pictures for their profiles. Some of you also know that I’m kind of a tech geek even when I’m not helping people wrangle their OkCupid profiles. I’ve been toying with the idea of hosting a WWDC-timed Mug Shots event […]

I have something SO COOL to show all y’all. Are you ready? It’s… Steady! This is a call-in dating and relationship advice podcast on 5by5. Kinda appropriate show art, right? ;) I can’t WAIT, y’all! This has been in the works for a while now; I’ve been dying to have a podcast again for ages. […]

Should you pay for Tinder Plus?

tinderplus

Tinder recently launched its new paid features, known as Tinder Plus. So far, they’re kinda lackluster and downright offensive to some people. NYC’s Metro US featured a Q&A with me about Tinder Plus, if you’d like to check it out! But if you’d rather read my own blog-postier analysis, here we go. :) Undo left […]
