I have spoken and taught all over the world as keynote, panelist, session speaker, visiting scholar, workshop leaders, etc.

I love to travel, meet new communities, share, learn, explore. I have a very collaborative and somewhat pointed style of teaching, that pushes people to open their minds to new frames, approaches, and ideas.

My main topics of content include but are not limited to: 

  • Design Operations (DesignOps)

  • Strategy

  • Design Education

  • Interaction Design

  • Studio Culture & Methods

  • Storytelling as a DesignTool
