I love giving talks or facilitating discussions (the latter is more fun). I can do this either in person or online, so if you have an interest in learning more about what I do or how I see the world, feel free to reach out. I have separated out keynotes, conference presentations, and school professional development sessions, and school connections, so please visit those pages to learn more.
