Speaking and Workshops

I’m available for speaking gigs; just contact me. I’d be happy to speak about my experiences with remote working, business-building, or web design and development.

Currently I’m focusing on giving presentations in the following areas:

  • Work-Life Balance and Efficiency: raising awareness about the health and career risks of overworking, teaching high-efficiency habits, encouraging downtime
  • Building Effective Teams: process design, designing healthy culture, onboarding, internal training
  • Modern Front-End Development: progressive web apps, high-performance patterns, React + GraphQL, architecture, testing, functional programming
  • GraphQL: managing GraphQL servers, using GraphQL in microservice architectures, combining GraphQL with REST

For a full list of the proposals I’m kicking around right now, see my presentation list. If I’ve given the presentation before, the slides are up there, too.
