Welcome to Tiny Iron Fists, a journal about life with our benevolent dictator, Lulu.
My name is Souris. I love my family, food, art, travel, technology, and community.
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.
Prior to this little corner of the internet, I managed the social media profiles of highly visible clients and was Vice President of Interactive Media for a LA-based strategic consulting agency. And before that I worked in video games, music, and magazine publishing. I've been blogging about art and culture at Hustler of Culture since 2003.
My posse nicknamed me "Tiny Iron Fists" because I once ruled our scene. Then I had a kid and now someone tinier than me, rules my world! How about that?!
Culture, creativity, and kids coincide here. Welcome!
