I have always had an interest in teaching, and I believe that conference presentations are one of the best ways to teach in a professional setting.
I believe that speakers should be part of the conference as well as presenting talks. A lot of the value in conferences comes from the hallways. If I speak at your conference, I will also attend.
I am interested in speaking on the following topics:
- Read the Docs & Sphinx
- Django & Python
- Leading Open Source Projects
If you would like me to speak at your event, feel free to email me
Here are a few videos of my previous talks.

My thoughts on how Documentation plays a role in the open source world.
