Speaking

I started experimenting with public speaking in 2016, and have been enjoying it so far. I talk a lot about accessibility, design, and the affects of technology on humans. I also co-organize the Ann Arbor Web Accessibility meetup group, along with Colin Fulton, Caitlin Cashin, and Chris DeMars.

Upcoming Talks

I won’t be doing a lot of speaking in 2019 while I dive head-first into being a researcher. But local events may come up, so stay tuned!
