In the last year, I kept asking myself “what has to change” and I started to find ways to make my life more balanced and my work more rewarding. The biggest change was joining LeanDog which has been amazing – fast paced, really interesting work, and a fantastic environment. But I also set a goal to speak at a conference and am happy to say that I just met my goal giving the talk “No one reads anything – designing for users on the move” at the 2012 M3 Conference in Columbus.
Sharing stories of what goes into making great mobile designs and tips on getting started, I found speaking quite easy and I ended up going a little faster than I expected. It was such a great experience for me, I’m already thinking of some other talks I’d like to get together. Anyhow, if you have any questions or just want to walk through some of these ideas, drop me an email or tweet – I’d be happy to talk.
