I spoke to the creative community of Iloilo, the Philippines at Creative Anarchy 2017. This was the first design, motion, and tech conference held in the area, and I'm so honored to have been a part of it. I got to share the stage 5 other amazing speakers.

Start before you're ready. Amazing things can happen.
In April 2016, I delivered my TEDx talk on my experiences as a creative, and committing to do something well before I was ready. I hope my story can inspire those of you who are hesitant, to push through the threshold of fear and doubt, and take your shot.
This morning, during my daily rehearsal in my sweat pants, in front of my imaginary audience, I finally hit the 12 minute mark of my TEDx Talk.
