What’s a social experiment?

I am perfecting the art of the social experiment, and I invite you to participate. A social experiment is kind of like performance art in that you create a scenario and get the public involved. Check out my current social experiments below.


Postcard Hugs

I designed two different versions of these postcards – one to hide around town and one to sell at in-person events. Both are pre-stamped so there’s no excise not to send it to someone you want to encourage.

Each postcard is like a hug you can send to a friend (or stranger).

Tell me your secrets

Secrets & Confessions

This project involves asking people to write their secrets and/or confessions down anonymously. I won’t look at any of the entries until the book is full. Once the book is full, I’ll be photographing and transcribing the entries into this website and onto Facebook. Some of them may end up in a future book. Who knows what amazing things we’ll find out together!


Coffee with Strangers

Actual coffee with actual strangers! Not only am I meeting up with strangers for caffeinated beverages, but I’ll be organizing meetups where strangers get together at coffee shops to meet and mingle. You’re going to want to be there. (Especially if you’re vaccinated!)


Free Hugs

This is an ongoing project. It started with myself and a friend at the farmers market in 2015. Then it involved into my sweetheart and me in our “FREE HUGS” t-shirts roaming around the city.

After that, it morphed into the 5000 Hugs project. Find out how you can support my hugging by participating in that project.
