Speaking

Every day I wake up with the goal of learning something new, solving an interesting problem, and sharing what I know. Public speaking is a fantastic way to serve a group of people by sharing what I’ve learned. Building computer programs is a great passion of mine, and I enjoy sharing that passion with as many folks as I can find.

I’ve presented 25+ times at conferences, meetups, and schools including South by Southwest, Big Design, DevNexus, and SMU. Giving talks, running workshops, teaching classes, writing articles, and recording screencasts are all well within my background.

Proud to say that I’m a published author. My first book, Responsive Web Design Toolkit: Hammering Websites Into Shape, is available on Amazon now!

Book Me to Speak About
