On May 2nd I participated in the TEDx St. Mary event held in Oshawa and had the opportunity to present to a crowd of over 800 students. I talked about my creative journey and how the tabletop games I played when I was young sparked my creativity, taught me empathy and gave me confidence, skills I use every day as both a comic writer and teacher.

The video is finally live-
TEDx – Raised By Dragons:

I’ll be honest, I was incredibly nervous in the lead up to the event and just wanted to make sure I didn’t embarrass myself up there. Thankfully, it turned out well and I’m really glad I did it. Having the chance to talk about games, comics, teaching, and storytelling in this way to an appreciative crowd was really special.

If you get a chance to watch the video and share it, that would mean a lot to me.

Big thanks to Craig Zimmer for setting up this event and offering valuable feedback throughout the process and, of course, a huge thanks to my family for their love and support all these years.
