I am the Founder and CEO of BzT®, the world's first machine washable and pre-embedded tracking apparel company for children. My utmost goal is to maintain the personal safety of children through the use of tech-enhanced clothing with smartphone technology. I created BzT® t-shirts, jackets and patches with waterproof, patented chipsets so that parents and caregivers can have peace of mind when their children are in crowded spaces and strange places. In combination with our innovative apparel, I also developed the BzT® App which parents, teachers, babysitters and other caretakers can download onto their smartphone and receive immediate alerts when their children wander beyond a pre-set range.
No one should ever have to feel the pain of losing a child, even for a few moments. I created BzT® to help reduce the risk of lost and missing children.
Prior to BzT®, I worked as a fashion professional in New You City for brands like Donna Karan International, Elie Tahari and Vince Camuto. My 20 years experience in the design, development, manufacture and distribution of clothing laid the foundation for creating BzT®. I ultimately want to leverage BzT®'s fashion technology to benefit larger populations such as special needs schools, hospitals, nursing homes and care facilities.
In conclusion, I believe that the union of fashion and technology can be a positive force for human connection, confidence, and most importantly, safety.
