TALKS & WORKSHOPS.
I love traveling and talking and/or conducting workshops. Don't hesitate to contact if you are interested in having me come to your school or to speak at your event. Past speaking engagements have included TedxPortland, Illustration Biennial in Haarlem, Netherlands, WMCFest in Cleveland and Creative Mornings in Portland. I really enjoy visiting schools and universities as well. Past workshop events have included: making zines, drawing, printing editions and branding brainstorming. Let's make something happen!
