Schedule and Speakers

Software Engineer and Creator
I created tinythoughts, the web app, a year and a half ago, because I liked the idea of journaling but wanted a way to make it easier for myself and others. Most of the features of tinythoughts (low character count, prompts, notifications) were borne of the desire to make journaling more accessible. I am excited to announce that tinythoughts is now available natively for iOS and Android! Journaling is now even easier, because now you can do it in bed, on the bus, or on the toilet. I am excited to hear what you all think!

Innovation/Strategy/UX Designer and Cartoonist
I'm the creator of Sticky Comics, a web-based humor comic about life, tech, and other problems. I've steadily worked on comics and other side projects while cultivating a busy tech career, most recently as a consultant in Innovation & UX Design. While my consulting gig keeps me busy, I've also become a published cartoonist known for viral webcomics and a four-year-long weekly humor series for Cosmopolitan.

I'm also a co-organizer of a local meetup and working group for writers (and other creatives) called Monkeys With Typewriters. I look forward to speaking with you about how to find balance in a busy life with a creative career, creative side projects, and a head full of ideas.
