Hello!

I'm Christine Koh, a music and brain neuroscientist turned multimedia creative. I'm the founder + editor of Boston Mamas, co-author of Minimalist Parenting, co-host of the Edit Your Life podcast, and creative director at Women Online. Drop me a line; I'd love to chat about how we can work together!

For Parents Who Find Cars Useful (That's Nearly Everyone, Right?)

Though I'm a huge proponent of public transit (I used to take the bus into Harvard Square and then the train all the way to Forest Hills alone as a third grader!), I fully realized the utility of cars when we were struggling to hold onto our one-car status after Vi was born. Juggling a stroller, bags, carseat, and two kids to the Zipcar station was truly onerous! I've since viewed cars in a new light and am excited to head to the Boston Auto Show next week as an ambassador with Chevrolet and SheBuysCars. Now, a few things about this event:

1. Want to come to the Boston Auto Show? I've got a pair of tickets to offer up to one lucky winner! The two (2) tickets are good for any one day of the show (January 15-19). I will be on the floor January 15 if you'd like to come meet up with me -- I'd love to meet you! To win the tickets, email editor@bostonmamas.com with "Boston Auto Show" in the subject by noon Friday, January 9, 2015.

2. I'm going to participate in a design salon the evening before the show starts and I'd love to bring any car design concerns you have to the table. Specifically, we'll be talking about where design inspiration comes from and how our experience and needs as consumers and parents impact design. So cool. As a designer, I dig this sort of thing! E-mail me or comment below if you have questions or concerns you'd like me to raise.

3. One of the cars that will be the focus of the day is the Chevrolet Trax and -- having finally entered the world of SmartTV and the ability to sync up the TV to my phone (#mindblown) -- I can't wait to check out their phone connectivity system (again, #mindblown).

4. I'll primarily be sharing live from the event next week via Instagram if you want to follow along there!

Disclosure: I'm serving as a compensated ambassador for the Boston Auto Show via Chevrolet and SheBuysCars. All thoughts and opinions resulting from my coverage are, of course, my own.
