You Too Can Be A Sketching Machine!

Sketching is a crucial skill for developers to ideate, iterate, and communicate their ideas. It is time to gain the confidence you need to sketch in person or in front of a group. By harnessing the power of sketching you can make sure your ideas are solid without wasting time going down the wrong path. In this fun workshop you will experience the power of sketching firsthand through challenging yet fun exercises that will nudge you out of your comfort zone. You will be able to apply what you learn into your workflow right away and start your sketching journey towards becoming a sketching machine.

My talk can be customized for a hands-on talk or a workshop.
The target audience for my workshops are those new to sketching. I have presented for kindergartners, designers, developers, researchers, and project managers.
