Welcome! I’m so happy you’re here!

I’m Monica, aka NYC Tech Mommy, a born and raised NYC girl, educator, and mommy of two. Like most New Yorkers, I’m highly caffeinated and completely iPhone dependent. When I’m not busy tackling mommy life, you’ll find me here sharing tidbits about my life hoping to inspire families to live simple, live fun, and live life with tech.

Connect with me on Instagram to follow our daily adventures @nyctechmommy

Thanks for stopping by and hope you’ll stick around for a bit. I’ve created this little online space to share cool tech tips (and other fun stuff ) with families and (teacher friends too) who might be looking for new ideas or just a little inspiration on how to keep life simple and fun.

Technology helps me do it all! I’d truly be nowhere without my technology! From making it simpler to buy my groceries, to storing images of those most meaningful life-living moments, tech truly does help me get things done so that I can have more time to live my life. Plus, I think using it is pretty COOL!

Unlike my kiddies, I do remember a time when computers were scarce and smartphones were non-existent.  Sometimes I wonder, how did people ever get anything done without a smartphone?

Technology brings us so many possibilities! You just have to be willing to give it a try!

The pic above was taken on the day I launched my website on February 4th 2015 .

Just two short years ago I launched this website hoping to inspire families to keep life simple and fun through the use of technology!

But technology isn’t all that this website is about. I also love spending time with my family, creating new memories, celebrating traditions, working on the occasional DIY project with the (very handy) hubby, crafting with the kiddies, planning pretty parties, cooking quick meals (cause let’s face it, I’d rather be on my computer), and taking a little vacation every now and then (and if there’s a beach involved, even better).

My life just wouldn’t be any fun without a mix of all these things. Thanks for following along!

NYCTM is growing

Meet Our Newest Member of the NYCTechMommy Team

Hi, I’m Katty, NYCTechMommy’s sister! Yes, Monica is my sister and I’m so happy to be here navigating the blogosphere with her.

Sisters – we’re pretty silly together! hahahaha!

When her blog was first born I watched and wondered if I could one day follow in her footsteps. After all, having a blog sounded pretty cool! So when she reached out to me and asked if I would help out with all those blog tasks that were becoming too much for just one mommy to handle, I quickly jumped on board. Wouldn’t you?

Young Women and Hair Loss - What it's really like!

Now you’ll find me working on new projects, designing graphics, and keeping up with social media (and anything else my big sister needs). Occasionally, you’ll also find me contributing to the blog! I have so many ideas (and so little time), but let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet.

Now let me tell you a bit about myself. I’m a new mom to an adorable baby girl. I must say, becoming a mom has been my proudest moment. I love every moment of motherhood, even the sleepless night (ok, maybe those not so much). As a working mom, I cherish every little moment I get to spend with my little princess.

I’m a New Yorker at heart, now living in New Jersey. My sister and I share many things in common. Like her, I love technology, cooking, DIY projects, pretty parties, the great outdoors, traveling, and the beach! I really wish I could have more beach days in my life, which is why I make it a point to head out to the beach every chance I get. What can I say, there’s nothing more relaxing than the sounds of the ocean while enjoying a beautiful sunset!


Big thanks to my sister for bringing me on board! I couldn’t be happier to be her co-pilot here on NYCTechMommy.com! I truly look forward to our new adventures and connecting with all of you.

Nice to meet you and thanks for stopping by!

~ Katty 🙂
