I teach about Google services, like Drive, Music, Chrome, Chrome OS/Chromebooks, Android, YouTube and the rest.
I talk about designing presentations, graphic design principles, making infographics, digital illustration, digital photography, and personal and organizational branding.
I want to help people. I want to use my various skills, achievements and passions in technology, arts, speaking, and other areas of experience and ability to help people make their own happiness, productivity, and best practices. I strive to support or improve my understanding of technology, balance, quiet, calm, and universal knowledge. To this end I support, to the best of my ability, clarity, transparency, communication, openness, open standards, open knowledge and education, and low thresholds of entry for all.
