Hello! Welcome! I’m Ted. My favorite thing in the world is finding out that two people I’ve introduced have become friends. It’s something I inherited from my mom, who was always bringing together folks she thought would hit it off. I introduce new friends five ways. I gather compatible foursomes to guest on the PopupCast. I set people up on blind friend dates. I introduce travelers to new friends in the places they’re visiting. “The best lunch date of my life. We were there for two-and-a-half hours but could easily have stayed for five.” Tina Roth Eisenberg New Yorker and founder of Swiss Miss, Creative Mornings, Tattly, Friends Work Here, and Teux Deux …and now friends with New Hampshirite Meg Hirshberg. I hold a problem-solving, friendship-seeding mini-conference called Meddle. And I plan fun outings for a weirdly compatible flavor of folks I call Sugarmaples. Other stuff to explore. Hear why I love seeding friendships so much. Learn a bit about my background. Find out how I make a living.
