why joy effect

Our Mission

  • To connect wonderful people to the experiences they deserve.

  • To connect people to spaces where they can feel comfortable to be themselves and find their community. 

  • To support hyyge and love in the world. Hygge is a Danish word that means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people.

What inspired The Joy Effect was the idea of an easier way to invite friends to events I was going to. Rather than sending individual texts to each of them, I started by sending a group email to all my favorite humans to whatever I would be attending that weekend.

When I first moved to LA, I wasn't sure where to meet good people. I feel very fortunate to have found, what I think, the best community of humans, and I want to alleviate the challenge of finding your tribe for wonderful humans who are new to LA.

As I continued to do it more, it naturally grew to include more people and those people also wanted to include their events. The events I invited them to became a meeting ground for people I knew to connect to each other and find deeper similarities and overlaps within each other.
