Souris Hong-Porretta

I am an author, social media strategist, new media consultant, curator of consumption, lifestyle journalist, and yay-maker! I interpret generational consumer choices for agencies and major corporations. My insider knowledge, awareness and 24/7 interactivity with movers, shakers, artists, intellects, and "the street" keep me in the vanguard of the needs, desires, and concerns of the “X, Y and Z” generations.

Huffington Post called my book, Outside the Lines: An Artists' Coloring Book for Giant Imaginations, “A Coloring Book To Trump All Other Coloring Books”. It features more than 100 avant garde artists including Keith Haring, Exene Cervenka, Shepard Fairey, AIKO, and Ryan McGinness. Outside the Lines is published by Perigee (an imprint of Penguin USA) and is a #1 seller on Amazon. (www.outsidethelinesbook.com)

I'm a member of Faith Popcorn's TalentBank, The Hollywood Hill, and the International Game Developers Association (IGDA). I am also the founder of the frieNDA network, an invitation-only, global creative cabal.

I enable people to connect in new ways, the old-fashioned way. I am very interested in making ideas happen and working with a wide variety of fine minds.
