Public Speaking

I love coding, and I love speaking.

Android is my bread-and-butter, so that's the focus of my tech talks.

I give lightning talks on broader topics: public speaking, career advice, etc.

As an independent developer, I am not backed by a big corporation. As such I need my travel and lodging expenses covered by the event. I may be able to waive my speaker fee for community events, but in general I expect to be paid to speak. This is the only way I can make it sustainable.

Featured Talk: How to be an Android Expert

In this keynote, I share practical tips on how to level up to be an expert. The advice is applicable beyond Android, for the core message is to share your knowledge.
