deliver engaging, interactive keynotes that share why drawing is such a powerful thinking tool — and concrete, accessible hows that get your people immediately picking up paper and pen to make meaning of their work and your event.
Beyond "sage on the stage," I use my
experience as a trainer and facilitator to create a custom experience for your audience.

For two decades, I have worked as a graphic facilitator; the one person in the room mapping out the conversations and
presentations for a wide variety of clients. I transform your discussion into a tangible drawing that frees your best mind to focus, make more connections, generate new ideas and understand their work in new ways.
As the visual, silent partner to a facilitator, I collaborate with you to make meetings more productive with the best use of visual, spatial and kinesthetic tools.
