I enjoy sharing ideas and strategies with friends, co-workers, and the greater design community.
Below are talks I've given relating to building out systems and team communication. Unfortunately there are no recordings available, but you are welcome to download the presentation slides to get an idea of the content.

A 10,000m Perspective was a talk given to a multi-discipline audience consisting of product managers, engineers, marketing personnel, and designers.
