I’m a seasoned public speaker and trained educator who loves to talk with creatives, entrepreneurs, artists, and women and underrepresented groups working in tech about finding success in their projects and careers. At SxSW I have spoken to entrepreneurs about technology’s impact on the handmade economy, filmmakers about fundraising and building a supportive audience for their work; and musicians about crowdfunding and non-traditional strategies to support their career. At the Craftcation Conference I talked with handmade business owners about setting actionable goals in order build successful businesses. I’ve traveled nationally lead workshops artists and creative entrepreneurs in the art of branding, marketing, and fundraising at institutions that range from the The Walker Art Center, the Philbrook Museum of Art, the Kansas City Art Institute, ArtServe Michigan in Detroit, and the MacDowell Colony residency.
