Quoted in Article about Ignite Charlotte at Charlotte Viewpoint

Its been a very busy and full week on my end (and next week is looking pretty similar). Nevertheless, I was happy to see Parul Joshi’s article at Charlotte Viewpoint as it had some quotes in there from her interview of myself and others after Spring’s Ignite Charlotte event:

I remember that night, and I still say that it was a bit of a miracle that I got through the talk. Nevertheless, I could see myself doing future Ignite (or Petcha Kucha, or TED, or honorary doctorate – hehehe – talks). Its quite fun to share your passions in different arenas. And even more fun when you get to mesh those with other perspectives that aren’t yours and have prominence in another’s lifestyle.

For a review, here’s the presentation of mine that was talked about some in the article:

I’m still doing sketchnotes too. You can see the gallery of them here.
