The transition to remote work for many of us opened opportunities to spend more time at home, or the mountain, and provided added flexibility to our working hours. You may be surprised to learn that digital transformation has come to not just the workplace, but also the ski industry.
If you have yet to go to any of the Disney Parks and Resorts, I strongly suggest you integrate it into your future vacation plans. While kids clearly love Disney, I’d argue that Disney is just as much for adults, if not more (you’ll usually find me in the Tequila Cave in the Mexico Pavilion […]
A couple of weeks ago I watched “Eighth Grade” (trailer below), which captured the utter anxiety and insecurity that middle school is ripe with. What really gave me anxiety though was just how much social media plays a huge part in amplifying these, so much so that after the film ended I thanked the fates […]
There are some things you should know about me. Besides the fact that I boast a lot about being from Chicago and can absolutely be won over with chocolate and peanut butter, my favorite celebrity is Ginger Zee. While she may not be your typical red-carpet celebrity, she’s my inspiration (and just happens to share […]
*Record Scratch* *Freeze Frame* You’re probably wondering how I got here. Well, let me explain….

Also, my hyperlinks were not working so all of my sources are at the end of the blog.** This weekend, Ultra Music Festival celebrates its 20th anniversary in Miami, Florida. Ultra […]
Venmo is life.
With the popularity of Instagram and Twitter and Facebook came a new app a few years ago: Timehop. Timehop SWEPT through my social circle with intense popularity. The premise? Remember all of the fun, cool things you posted on the internet one year ago today! Or all the years ago today! HOW FUN! Okay, I’m […]
Imagine a huge football stadium, a stadium just like this, packed with people; and everyone has his or her attention only, only on you —- PLAYING VIDEO GAMES. Just let that thought sink in a little. IT’S PRETTY DARN COOL RIGHT?! Then it gets a little creepy, and that’s when you stop thinking about it. […]
Check one two… Believe it or not, this is my first blog post ever. Guess it might be a move out of my comfort zone, haha! Although I have read quite a few blog posts including posts for this class, sitting down and actually writing one takes me to another level. It is not like […]
I am fired up about this class to say the least. As a New York sports fan it is definitely one of the more exciting things going on in my life right now. I have been active on social media since high school, so I am familiar with several different platforms. But this class is […]
As we start off the year in ISYS6621: Social Media and Digital Business I think my feelings are somewhat constricted when I tried to create a title for this post. As a Senior, I like to think that I’ve gotten the whole BC class formula down: Read the syllabus, note the exam days, and read […]
