Speaking Engagements

I can honestly say, I never thought my love for typography would lead to speaking engagements. The sole purpose in starting this blog was for me to have a creative outlet. I am amazed that it’s reaching so many people and I am so inspired that the feedback has been so positive. It’s so rewarding to travel to different parts of the country sharing my love for typography.

For my presentations, I ask local creatives to take typographic pictures that are unique to their city. These pictures are sent to me one month prior to my talk and I prepare a personalized presentation for each city I visit. It has been incredibly challenging and extremely rewarding. Traveling to different cities, experiencing their culture, and meeting other type lovers has been an absolute thrill.
