Events

As an advocate for diversity in tech, I have been occasionally asked to speak at functions to improve representation in tech fields. I have also participated in and organized charity events to help organizations like the Red Cross. Below is a list of events I have been invited to, participated in, and/or organized.

Invited speaker at Alterconf in Atlanta on the subject of diversity in the video game community and within games themselves. The full powerpoint presentation can be viewed here.  A video of the speech can be viewed on Youtube here.

Charity event I organized in conjunction with TSSZNews.com. In this 18-hour marathon, I streamed video games while soliciting donations from viewers. The final donation number ended up at four digits and went to the Red Cross for disaster relief. A full playlist of the event can be viewed here.
