UX Burlington

Edit: The full list of speakers is out!

I’ll be speaking at this year’s UX Burlington Conference. It’s humbling to present at this conference, and even more so to be part of the speaker lineup that includes Gail Swanson and Marguerite Dibble.

I first met Gail in 2012 at the Balanced Team Summit in Chicago, when she was at Sapient-Nitro. She’s now at 18F, and when Agilion approached me with suggestions for keynote speakers, I immediately suggested Gail. I’m excited to see her speak, as her talk at last year’s Balanced Team Summit in Grand Rapids was very motivating and inspiring.

I met Marguerite in 2015, when she guided the Reading Plus UX for our forthcoming redesign of the Student Dashboard experience. She is a master level experience designer, and attendees can expect something special from her talk.

This will be a fantastic event to learn about what it takes to build great experiences for the web while networking with the Vermont and New England UX community.

Vermont Singer Songwriter Contest

Last night, I competed in the semi-final round of the Vermont Singer/Songwriter contest at Metronome, and I successfully advanced to the final round next Tuesday at Higher Ground!

The show starts at 7pm, is free, and all ages are welcome.

The format of the show: each of the 9 finalists gets up to 15 minutes to play original music. Figure the show will go until 9:30 or thereabouts.

It would be great to see a lot of familiar faces in the crowd that night!
