Chronology

Below is a partial list of invited talks, workshops, and exhibitions as well as events I've helped organize. Contributing to a culture of teaching and learning from one another is important to me, and I am always interested to help out with this kind of work.

I often speak about creative applications of computer science and "AI", and particularly enjoy introducing beginners to computation in this way.

Please reach out at hi@wxs.ca if you are interested in working together.
