Speaking

Keynotes and nomadic adventures

In two years, I’ve had the honor of addressing audiences at over 40 events in more than 15 beautiful countries. I am intent on challenging the ways in which I and others think about design, and I’m especially focused on fulfilling that mission in unique and emerging places that aren’t frequented by big design conferences. I invite you to join in this journey with me, whether it be by attending one of my talks or meeting up with me when I’m in your area. There is a lot that designers can learn from each other.
