I am available for public speaking at events related to culture, art, music, media, games, virtual reality and education/entrepreneurship.
I also offer workshops related to my fields of expertise, where I teach my DIY approach to art and creative content production.
Each talk and workshop is tailored to fit the audience, as they have ranged from generalist university students and VR enthusiasts to specialists and developer teams working on concrete projects. I aim to inspire and inform, whether I'm sharing knowledge and techniques, introducing my audience to practical tools, or talking about the challenges related to being an independent artist/developer/entrepreneur. I enjoy discussing the risks of venturing into new, unfamiliar territory -something I've consciously chosen to do with each new project over the past 10 years- and I like to offer what I find useful in overcoming the resulting difficulties.
My motivation for public speaking is born of the desire to promote the voices of artists and other independent creators in contributing to the language of the technology and cultural values that shape our future, as well as the wish to see more diversity, inclusiveness and transparency in the media and industries I work in.
