NYC Tech Mommy – A Family Lifestyle, Tech & Travel Blog


Hi! I’m Monica, aka NYC Tech Mommy. Welcome to our family lifestyle, tech, & travel blog, where I inspire you to live simple, live fun, and live life with tech.

I’m a born and raised New Yorker, Latina, digital parenting expert, connected educator, and mommy of two. When I’m not busy tackling mommy life, you’ll find me here in my little corner of the web, sharing tidbits about my life, hoping to inspire you to live your best life!

A lot of what I share here revolves around tech because technology is how I get things done! Gadgets are my thing and I’d probably blow your mind if I told you how many apps I hoard on my iPhone. You know, there’s an app for that EVERYTHING! From making it simpler to buy groceries and make meals, to storing images, to managing my family’s screen time and keeping the kids on track with learning, tech truly helps me get it all done! 

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

Live Simple, Live Fun, Live Life with tech -

Just a few short years ago I launched this website hoping to inspire families to keep life simple and fun through the use of technology! Today my mission is to show you that although technology may be a bit intimidating to those of us who may not be digital natives, it doesn’t have to be complicated to use. Here on NYC Tech Mommy, I share digital parenting tips and tricks to help you manage your family’s digital lifestyle, so you can keep up with your techy kids! From the latest gadgets and tech toys to the most useful apps and websites, I’ve got you covered! 

Tech isn’t everything!

Tech isn’t all that this website is about. My family comes first. Always! I love spending time with them, exploring our city, creating new memories, celebrating traditions, working on the occasional DIY project with the (very handy) hubby, crafting with the kiddies, planning birthday parties, cooking quick meals (cause let’s face it, I’d rather be on my computer), enjoying family road trips, and taking a little vacation 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. And I love sharing it all with you, here on NYCTechMommy!
