Education and mentorship is of great importance to me, and I value the opportunities to share with others my experiences and knowledge. I have spoken for student classes and groups, teachers and school administrators, design organizations, and more. Some talks I have given are:

  • Confident Design Every Time: a talk about what makes good design

  • Understanding Brand: a talk given to startups about the power of brand

  • Project Management: a talk about the importance of having efficient project management and how to achieve this

  • The Design Process: various talks about the importance of design process in a variety of project settings

  • Wireframing and Prototyping: a talk about the different stages of developing a website from sketch, prototype, and launch

  • Social Media Today: a talk given to share with K-12 teachers and administrators, as well as at the higher ed level, knowledge about current trends in social media that their students engage in

  • What I Wish I knew in High School: an annual talk given to high school students about my work experience and growth since high school in the creative field

  • Adobe Creative Cloud: Awesome New Features & Adobe Products used in the Web Design Process: a talk about the less talked about uses of Adobe products in the web design process

  • The Power of Mentorship: I haven’t given this talk yet, but it is my future goal to give a TED talk on this subject. Seeing it in my own life experiences, I'm very passionate about the value provided by having mentors. I do believe it's life-changing and so important.
