Speaking Calendar

Wanna take this offline?

There’s something so satisfying about a room full of passionate people. These selected events—whether I’m giving a talk at a conference or performing at a local shindig—are often open to the public (though, not all of them are on this calendar). Maybe one day we’ll cross paths.
