Speaking

I love sharing what I’ve noticed, what I’ve learned, and what I see coming next. One of the ways I do this is through speaking engagements on the future of work, entrepreneurship, education, and pop culture.

My talks don’t pitch services or pummel an audience with rehashed, repetitive content. Instead, I focus on delivering something that makes the audience feel inspired, energized, and eager to start conversations and take action.

Here’s a brief overview of my speaking work – if you’d like to know more then just get in touch.


What topics do you talk about?

While I’m open to creating a custom talk or workshop based on your needs, these are some of the topics I typically cover: 

  • The rise of lowercase skills
  • The future of experiential education
  • How to strike out alone as a freelancer or solopreneur
  • Managing the tension between art & business

Do you ever speak for free?

Creating engaging and well-designed presentations takes a lot of time, energy, and effort, so I don’t tend to speak for free – with the exception of visiting places I haven’t yet been to and really want to check out.

If you happen to need a speaker for an event in one of those locations and the dates line up, I’ll waive my speaking fee.

Are you in one in those locations? Maybe 🙂 Drop me a note and find out!

Do you do other kinds of speaking work?

As well as keynotes, I’m an experienced panel moderator, workshop facilitator, and host of fireside chats and podcasts.

I’ve hosted sessions with people from companies such as Apple, Adobe, The New York Times, SXSW, Duolingo, Airbnb, Sonar Festival and many more.
