Want me to speak at your event?
I’d be honored to be asked to speak at your conference or private event.
I take every event seriously and make an effort to be a part of the event rather than just a quick pop in to do my talk. If I am speaking, you can expect me to deliver a talk that aims to inspire, delivers insite and give actionable takeaways to your audience.
What I’ve given talks on in the past
I’ve spoken at more recent events like Silicon Beach Fest, Rennaisance Dinner, & Uncoded. I also speak at a few meetups a year as well as present workshops.
I’ve recently been submitting proposals to speak at various tech conferences. You may have stumbled upon this page after reading it to get more background on me.

I don’t pitch anything from stage
I realize that your attendees are often taking time off from work to attend your event or conference. Perhaps they are even paying their way there, so I understand they want a talk that is informative. We have all sat through talks with promise only to reliaze it is a sales pitch, I avoid those.
I started and scaled a web agency to 5 employees.
I am a software engineer, but love architecture, product and leading talented teams a bit more these days.

I created and manage multiple open source projects.
I have started multiple companies over the years… some failures and lessons learned along the way.
I have a degree in Electrical & Computer Engineer (CMU) and master’s degrees from Columbia and Dartmouth.
Some unique things about me
