Speaking & Teaching

love public speaking, teaching, and appearing on panels and podcasts. Here are some resources you can check out online from past gigs I’ve done:

  • In 2016 I spoke at XOXO (a festival dedicated to independent creators making things on the internet) about money, success, and fear. You can watch the video below:
  • While teaching at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark, I had the chance to distill my two-week class on Comics and the Internet into an hour-long talk about communities and social media. You can watch the video here.
  • In 2017 I appeared at the Portland chapter of Creative Mornings to speak about curiosity, belonging, and job titles. Full video here.
  • I’m a recurring guest on The Galaxy of Super Adventure, an all-ages podcast about making comics that also happens to be a space-faring radio comedy with Ben Hatke, Jerzy Drozd, and Zack Giallongo.
  • I keep a pretty exhaustive collection of panels I’ve appeared on, interviews with other creators, and workshops I’ve taught on SoundCloud. There’s a ton of information here for creators looking to break into comics or other creative fields.
  • I’ve experimented with livestreaming classes at the Independent Publishing Resource Center via Periscope. You can watch them here.

And here, in no particular order, are some of my favorite interviews from the last few years:
