I am fascinated about process and action over techniques and ‘how-to’s, sharing failures, and unique perspectives.

I am currently working on filling my 2013 speaking schedule. If you have a conference or event coming up send me an email, and I would love to hear what you have in mind.

Here are a few topics I love speaking on: design beyond the pixels, customer service as branding, designers as entrepreneurs, discovering cultural trends, and authenticity.
