Speaking

My formal disciplines are philosophy, theology, and music.

In addition to my work as a singer, I teach at Olivet Nazarene University and serve as a minister in the Church of the Nazarene.

Since 2014, I’ve been advocating for web ethics in the open source community.

I’m also an expert in parliamentary-procedure, specializing in the not-for-profit sector. I believe in having meetings that help organizations live up to their ideals.

I’m available to speak on any of these topics. Let’s keep the conversation going.

Here’s a sample of presentations I’ve given at universities, conferences, houses of worship, and MeetUps.
