I was a nationally ranked college debater (#1 regular season and final four finish), debate coach and speech instructor. I've given hundreds of talks on everything from pop culture to foreign policy. I give technology-related talks to non-techies now (hard to cull down complicated stuff to laypeople) and I just generally love the psychology and physicality that goes into presentations.
I've practiced as a trial attorney and I'm currently building LexSpot, a startup company devoted to making the law less frustrating for clients and lawyers.
