Events and Gatherings

In an effort to meet more of the community, we are working hard to set up several public appearances where you can come out to meet myself (and often my family), learn, connect and collaborate and play. If you are able, come out to one or more of these events and let’s hang out!

Below are the public events planned for 2017. Just show up or subscribe to the community email subscription list to get updates on these events, similar endeavors, and other experiential education information and opportunities.
