I have taught writers as the Writer in Residence for Bermuda, as well as at workshops like Shared Worlds, Alpha Teen Writing Workshop, Clarion, and Seton Hill University. I’ve spoken about topics from creative living, ecology, and futurism at O’Reilly Tools of Change, Ohio Northern University, Bluffton University, the Whole Earth Festival, the Caribbean Studies Association, and metro library events throughout Ohio and Michigan. I’ve been a guest of honor of conventions like AnimeKon Expo and Odyssey Con, and am a guest on shows like Cult Pop (Michigan cable) and Geeks Guide to the Galaxy.
