I am available to speak for conferences and events—an overview of my current talk is as follows:

This talk is about finding success as a designer through vulnerability. I will share my personal experience—the aversion I faced in my life from having clinical anxiety at the age of 4 to almost dying. Through these experiences, I realized that I was focused on the wrong types of outcomes and our ride on this planet is too short for that shit. Exploring vulnerability opens up new opportunities otherwise unrecognized, so let’s open up, alllllll the way up. Audience members can expect to walk away with new perspectives on being a designer, on life, and the benefits of being truly vulnerable in their work and life.
