I’m an effective communicator & instructor. I share knowledge with & learn from others, no matter where they are on their path.

Art Institute of Portland

I find inspiration in teaching and have taught many courses over the years focusing on entrepreneurship, brand strategy, social media, emerging markets & trend forecasting.

Workshops & Talks

I love to teach workshops & give talks in a variety of settings. A few of my favorites have been: Mozilla View Source, Pioneer Nation, PNCA Bridgelab, and Schoolhouse Craft Conference.

Other Projects

I am often developing new tools to help others grasp complex concepts. One of the worksheets I use frequently for teaching & personal projects is the Creative Canvas; a one-page business model for designers, freelancers, and makers.
