One of my first speaking engagements for a Product Hunt meet up at Threadless HQ. 

I’ve been fortunate to be asked to offer my insights on various topics in design. I’ve been interviewed, created keynotes, and held webinars to share what I’ve learned during my career. I also like to host, or facilitate events on topics I think are important in design currently.  

Topics include:
  • Design Leadership
  • UI for UXers
  • Content-first Design

I continue to speak at various design events, am the program director for The Society of Typographic Arts, and UXPA Chicago.

If you’d like me or to help set up an event or to speak at yours, just ask.
