Food preference: I try to focus on vegetarian/vegan meals but it's not a hard boundry. In general I am always able to take care of myself so please don't block on this.

Do you have a bio: See below.

Best way to contact you: I value brevity. If you can't find what you need here, you can email me below.

Request for me to speak at your event

The best way to ask me to speak at your conference is to email and include the following information:

  • What is the name of the event
  • What is the best link to find out more about the event
  • What is your name and contact information?
  • What type of presentation you have in mind?
  • Anything else you want!

These emails go directly to a private account that I own. I recieve push notifications, so I assure you - I will see this request. It might take me a while to get back to you, so please be patient.
