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’ve delivered a number of lectures about professionalism, social media, community building, running successful Kickstarters, and more. Here are two selections:
  • 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.
  • In 2017 I appeared at Creative Mornings Portland to discuss childhood passions, the importance of curiosity, and embracing unusual job titles.
  • 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.

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