Speaking Engagements and Events


2018 included the USA, Canada, Austria, Norway, Serbia, Ireland, Ukraine, and Israel.

2019 included keynotes, workshops, and sessions in the UK, USA, Germany, India, and Sweden.

I put on 100,000 miles each year in 2018 and 2019. I plan to travel again – someday – when it’s safe.

As I speak at over many events, conferences, meetups, and private functions each year, it has become too wild a task to try to list all of them here. Instead, here are some summaries and highlights, excluding private events and training:


Keynotes at American Marketing Association conference, DevOps Pro Europe

UXPX LA, miniVAte VA, IPC, Umbraco Codegarden. Various meetups including Ladies That UX Berlin, RGD, UXPA Cleveland’s World Usability Day. I also organized a 3-day live event called Concentric.

I applied to fewer 2021 events since many events were claiming they would be live in person and I was not yet ready to travel.

"The goal is for you to build a fantastic, vetted product ONCE. Can you smell that? That’s the sweet pizza smell of not having to keep rebuilding the same thing over and over because someone keeps changing their mind."
