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.

See Life Through My Eyes

  • First day of first grade and pre-k! :school_satchel:
  • How about now?
  • Making way for a nice and open, L-shaped kitchen with an island. Can you see it yet?
  • While I was removing the counter, Amy was removing the faux shutters by the front door. Thanks to the newspaper stuffed behind them, we now know that they’ve been hanging there for over 52 years.
  • We also started demo on the kitchen today. After dinner, I took out the counter on that side, so all that’s left are the 3 base cabinets.
  • This is the only part of the house that they care about. Oh hey, does anybody want a big cement fountain?
  • She’s liberated!
  • @bakecaker: “Well, you have the day off, why don’t you bring a few tools to closing so we can get started on some things this afternoon. Me: “K.”
  • We close on this place tomorrow morning, but today: ‪It’s the FINAL WALKTHROUGH!‬ ‪Da na na naaaa‬ ‪Da na na na naaa...‬
  • Lookit! Just lookit dis widdle pea nugget.
  • Happy Slurpee Day!
  • Adelyn’s been home all week and with some help from @bakecaker, knocked out most of this 500pc puzzle today. :hushed:
