I was active in the Seattle storytelling scene, especially A Guide to Visitors. In 2011 I traveled to Portland for Back Fence PDX, where I told a crowd of 800 about the various maladies I endured as a Peace Corps Volunteer.
In 2013 I spent a month writing about my son, who has autism, at A Month of Son.
In 2015 I gave a presentation at PAX WEST entitled "The Art and Science of Teaching Board Games", where I distilled my decades of experience guiding people through the morass of Cosmic Encounter rules into a 40 minute talk. In 2016 I gave the exact same talk a second time, because I am hella lazy.
In August of 2020 my talk "Read the Rules: What Technical Writers can Learn From Board Game Design" was featured at Write the Docs PDX. My slides and a video of the presentation are available here.
I was pretty active on Twitter until I decided it was a toxic cesspool and disabled my account. Then I had second throughts, tried to reenable my account, and discovered that it had somehow gotten suspended. NOOOO MY PRECIOUS TWEETS!! It's as if 20000 pithy and misspelled observations cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.
