ConFoo Montreal 2018 - Photo by (

Within the last couple of years, I’ve developed a passion for teaching and public speaking. However, that’s somewhat crazy, because I struggle with crippling anxiety.

It’s a rewarding journey. I went from terrified of getting on a stage, to not getting enough of it.

But, don’t mistake me; I still have a long way to go.

In fact, I don’t consider myself to be a great public speaker. Every conference I’ve spoken at surrounded me with fantastic, compelling speakers. I’m still working to reach their level.
