I’ve had the privilege to share my knowledge with others in the design community, and several Chicago organizations. I enjoy public speaking and getting to hear other’s thoughts on many topics. I’m always looking for more opportunities to speak. Just give me a shout!

Speaker at Chicago A11y Camp 2018
At the full day camp I spoke about how to build great rapport for people with disabilities in your design research, and how including a wider range of people in your design can create a more inclusive experience.
A11y Talks - Practical Ways to Include people with disabilities
My talk focused on practical ways for UX researchers, product managers and anyone involved in the design process to recruit people with disabilities.
Lunch & Learn at IDEO
At IDEO in Chicago I spoke about how to be more inclusive for people with disabilities. My experience within the disability community has given me a unique perspective about how bad design creates exclusions for many people, and how including people with disabilities can help close these gaps.
