Thanks to an unexpected combination of hubris and overabundant enthusiasm about roller skating, I’ve been selected as a speaker for Ignite Portland 11! Yes, you read that right, folks–if you’ve been looking for an opportunity to see me attempt public speaking in all my introverted glory, here it is.
I’ll be delivering 20 slides’ and 5 minutes’ worth of wisdom about how “You Can Become More Awesome At Rollerskating,” calling upon my 2+ years of experience playing roller derby with the Rose City Rollers. I look forward to filling your brains with factoids to help you become a better skater, and even if I trip over a few words, I’ll have a smexy set of 20 slides to guide you through.
Admission is free, and you can get in early to snag great seats when you bring a canned food donation for Oregon Food Bank. Find out more about Ignite Portland and the other awesome speakers, and come get enlightened about a smattering of cool topics!
