Let’s meet up!

Check out the calendar below for workshops, public speaking events, and other activities I have lined up.  I list some of my project planning sessions, so you can get an idea of what I’m working on, and I have included interesting public events where I’ll be in the audience.   Maybe I’ll bump into you there. Or, click here to check out where my work regularly appears.

Looking for a training?

I teach researchers and educators how to use drawings in their professional work, in research, teaching, and outreach settings. Click here for details.
