I speak on a wide variety of subjects, both from my professional background (metadata, data quality, taxonomies, user experience, branding, controlled data, faceted navigation, etc.) and my personal research (evangelical christian popular culture, the Insane Clown Posse, Precious Moments). If you need a speaker who can discuss any of these ideas either at your conference or entertainment venue, contact me.
