I present 15 to 45 minute talks and interactive workshops on futurism and the spirit of invention - speaking from personal anecdotes.

Talks can be remote, in person, underwater or in space.

Audiences have included C-suite leaders, future visionaries, tech industry professionals, engineers, designers, artists, creativity curious adults, STEAM students, kids and pets.

Free for non-profits, educational institutions, and collectives. For others my speaking fee minus expenses gets donated to a charity supporting internet freedom, privacy, net neutrality and innovation.
