Speaking highlights


Creating Your First UX Portfolio

In 2021 I taught a 15-hour course to HCI grad students at University of Maryland. Through a combo of lectures, assignments and in-class crits designers learned how to get their projects job application ready.


State of Design Hiring 2021

Keynoted the UX Fair 2021 conference to over 200+ people about the latest trends in industry. Even as trends come and go, doubling down on one’s skills is never out of fashion.
