// Flattered you're here.


// Speaking Engagements

I love speaking at conferences! If you would like to invite me to speak at your event, please review the following details.


I strongly believe in safety at events and so I only speak at conferences that have an actionable and enforced Code of Conduct.

I love to support the community through speaking but for me to do so I require travel expenses to be covered by the event. I would prefer to do this as a reimbursement so that I can book my own travel. I also require an honorarium (speaking fee). If you are a non-profit, we can discuss terms to make the engagement possible.

When contacting me, please let me know what actions you are taking to ensure a diverse and inclusive event.
