Speaking Gigs in the Fall

I've got several opportunities to speak, coming up in September and October. Definitely come out to one of these if you can and say hello.

Blend Conference / Sep 5-7 / Charlotte, NC: I'm really glad to see a conference fire up right here in my hometown of Charlotte, NC. This conference is focusing on user experience, design, and web development. This is a really impressive line up of speakers, especially for a 1st year conference and I'm excited to be a part.

Brand New Conference / Sep 13 / NYC: I've had the pleasure of coming to the first two years of the BN Conf, so to get to speak is an extra special honor. I will be speaking alongside some industry greats and going on right before Michael Beirut. Come watch as I try and hold it together. 

Circles Conference / Sep 19-20 / Grapevine, Texas: A conference that focuses on inspiration and community. There's a great line-up that I'm excited to be a part of ( I even got to design the conference T-shirt! ).

AAF-Charlotte / Sep 26 / Charlotte, NC: I'll be participating in a joint session with Jon Luther & Brandy Newton of JJ's Red Hots to talk about the process behind the development of the brand. It's a great opportunity to get both the design and client side perspectives and should be a fun time of sharing some behind the scenes of building a brand from the ground up.

AIGA Design Conference / Oct 10-12 / Minneapolis, MN: I will be participating in an Affinity Session with Jessica Karle Heltzel and Tim Hoover from Kern and Burn and discussing design entrepreneurship and self initiated projects. This is a massive conference, so I hope to get to see some great speakers and meet a lot of folks.
