Other Upcoming Speaking Engagements

On stage at the 2007 Webmaster Jam SessionMy wife and I are expecting our first baby in March and have a new house that needs a lot of work before the baby arrives so I’m not currently taking on any new speaking engagements. I really love getting up in front of people and talking about what I do, so I’m sure I’ll be looking for speaking opportunities again in the near future. (For some reason every parent I know laughs when I say that.)

If you’re looking for someone to fill a presentation slot at your upcoming web conference or workshop, please let me know.
I’m excited about SXSWi this year. I won’t be speaking, but I’ve been given the opportunity to curate a series of talks about web design as a part of a new workshops concept at this year’s conference. Read about it on the blog.
One of the biggest things I’ve learned from the speaking opportunities that I’ve had so far is that I love speaking to other people who love the web. So if you’re looking for someone to fill a presentation slot at your upcoming web conference or workshop, please let me know.
