Past Venues and Engagements
I regularly speak on fantasy- and steampunk-interest topics for groups like Midwinter Gaming Convention, TeslaCon, Society for Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, and Realm Makers. Previously I taught composition and ESL writing at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and narrative structure, screenwriting, and film production at the Art Institute of Wisconsin. I have also lectured at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design and the Act One program in Los Angeles.
Basically, if it’s a subject related to storytelling, new media, resourceful creativity, or the steampunk subculture, I’d be happy to share what I know (and research further, too). Just contact me.
