My TED story
I founded TEDxEast in collaboration with a wonderful committee and community. TEDxEast was the first TEDx event in NYC and has shifted from large events to smaller, tightly-curated dinner parties. As our community grows, we seek to offer our local community a TED-like experience in NYC. To do so we draw on the resources of NYC and highlight talent from NYC and beyond. Thanks to our partnerships with the History Channel. We organize events and ways to connect the community as much as possible in meaningful ways.
