Speaking & workshops

Looking for a speaker or panelist for a tech event? I've spoken on the following topics in forums including IA Summit, IxDA conferences, and events across Google and I am always seeking new opportunities.

  • Getting started in UX

  • Design sprints: What they're good for and how to host one

  • Failing fast: How to generate and vet ideas quickly

  • Prototyping tools and techniques


Selaire surf

Selaire is a lifestyle brand that gives a portion of proceeds to tech and environmental causes. Does the thought of sun, sand, surf, streams, firepits, frosty brews, gnar shredding, and s'mores-time-USA release an inner squeal? Don't hold it back. Pick up some fresh threads and get out there!
