I’m an experienced and popular speaker. I’ve presented about art direction and digital design to over 23,000 web professionals* since 2005.

If you’re interesting in me speaking at your conference, I’ve written some information for event organisers. I also love speaking at company and community events. I’m available for events throughout 2018, so talk to me.
