Want me to speak at an event? Great! I have plenty to share.


Hey there! Thanks for thinking of me. I’ve spent much of my life on stages, and am an experienced speaker who regularly gives talks, hosts, moderates and speaks on panels. I also produce conferences via Black & Brown Founders, including Project NorthStar, one of the largest tech conferences for Black and Latinx entrepreneurs and knowledge workers.

Some topics I talk about include: diversity, equity and inclusion in tech; launching startups with modest resources; the economic future of creativity; harnessing your "superpower"; alternatives to venture capital; fashion technology; hardware design, development and manufacturing; and parenting while building a startup. There are others, too. Just ask!
