Speaking

I started experimenting with public speaking in 2016, and have been enjoying it so far. I primarily speak about accessibility, design, and how they intersect. It all started because I was disappointed in how few designers seem to want to talk about accessibility. I decided I should try and do something about that.

I also co-organize the Ann Arbor Web Accessibility meetup group, along with Colin Fulton, Caitlin Cashin, and Chris DeMars.

Upcoming Talks

I’m taking the summer off, so I don’t have any upcoming talks to share. In meantime, if you’re local to Ann Arbor, why don’t you check out the Ann Arbor Web Accessibility meetup group?
