Overtime

Here are things that I do off the clock, including interviews, speaking engagements and other public events. Some related to design, some not. Sometimes I’ll do interviews and mean mug in the photos.

More are always in the works. Want to talk to me? Let me know.

Pecha Kucha Night / AIGA Pittsburgh
Fail So Hard: Success and Queerness

Slides here

I gave this presentation shortly after I dropped out of a PhD program, was rejected by multiple prospective employers, and rejected by a typography program. It was hilarious! Unfortunately, AIGA Pittsburgh didn’t record the festivities or I would link to the video.
