Writing & Speaking

I've published design articles in A List Apart, .net Magazine, Offscreen Magazine, The Pastry Box Project, Smashing Magazine, Distance and others. I've also had creative writing published in several small journals. I tend to write about what interests me at the time.

I've spoken at An Event Apart, HOW Interactive Design Conference, SmashingConf, North by Northeast Interactive, Made by Few, and others in Boston, D.C., Toronto, Chicago, NYC and London, UK. If you're interested in me speaking at your event, give me a shout.
