Speaking at Snap! 2016 this April

In 2014, I decided I wanted to share my skills with others. I taught a Digital Marketing class at General Assembly and then spoke at Alt Summit in January 2015 and co-taught an Instagram workshop at Makeshift Society SF that March.
 

This April 2016, I'm speaking to another community of creatives at Snap! in Salt Lake City.

Building Up Isn't as Simple as Not Tearing Down

When we talk of women supporting other women we talk in generalities. We assume that women's behaviors are black and white. Build up versus tear down. Collaborate versus compete. But it's not that simple. Women are just as guilty as men as passive aggressively blocking other women.
 

Supporting women by building up is more than simply not tearing down

 

Women bury their actions. Miscommunication. Inconsistency.
 

Women expect that other women will assume that they misunderstood the other person. They expect the benefit of the doubt. And we need to stop. We need to start calling other women out on these behaviors. And here's why.
 

Do you call women out when they're communicating poorly? Being inconsistent?

Making Time (or How I Ended Up at Burning Man 2015 for Our Five Year Wedding Anniversary)

We spend so much of our lives putting off what's important. We assume there will always be more time. That we can tell (or show) someone we love how much we care.
 

This belief that we'll have tomorrow is one we need to turn on its head. If ever there's a time to be mindful and to be present it's now. We can't control what will happen in the future as much as we want. And with everything that's going on in the world today, a tomorrow that looks like today is more and more unlikely.

If today was your last day with someone, would you be happy with how you left it?

Raising a Foodie: Banana Pecan Pancakes

Growing up every Saturday either my sister or I helped my mom make buttermilk pancakes. Weekends, for me, mean pancake breakfasts. However, when you can't have cow's milk, pancakes often fall short of one's expectations. That is until Gates discovered the perfect non-dairy banana pancake recipe.
