I'm a professionally-trained public speaker, comfortable in front of crowds of a few thousand. I've felt it important to spend more time sharing knowledge with others. Part of that endeavour will include speaking engagements as I have time, ability and opportunity. I'll link my presentations on this page along with any accompanying open source projects used in demos.
- I joined Stream as Developer Relations Lead and Growth Hacker in August 2016, focusing on building community and developer relationships.
- I was not an official "developer evangelist" by job title of SendGrid, Inc between 2011 and 2015, but always enjoyed sharing about SendGrid and its technologies.
If you'd like me to speak at an event, go ahead and contact me for availability.
