Secret Experiences

Baya Voce has been called “the female ‘Hitch’” (ABC), and her TEDx talk titled “The Simple Cure for Loneliness” is one of the most-viewed TEDx talks of all time, with ~3.7 million views and counting. She is currently an experience designer who creates events ranging from two-person rituals to elaborate 1,000+-person theatrical productions (think “Sleep No More”) that have been called “the social experiments of the century.” Baya has been featured by Fox, ABC, AskMen, Daily Worth, and more for her expert perspective on human connection, given her prior years as a successful matchmaker and dating coach and experience with a wide spectrum of self-development and relationship dynamics: teaching women-only seduction camps, men’s-only dating workshops, and a variety of self-development and relationship seminars.
