One of my favorite things to do is share the things that I’m learning. I also love to travel under the guise of attending conferences. I get to meet new people, catch up with old friends, and have the kind of conversations that get me thinking about things in a totally different light.

I focus most of my talks on managing a personal business, as well as ways to improve or democratize the sharing of content. I am grateful to be able to successfully run my own business, and do what I can to share that skill with others. I also think that everyone should have the opportunity to share their work on the open web, outside of the walled gardens that most social media sites have become.
