For just over a year, I strictly self-quarantined with my family in Chicagoland. I’m grateful to work in e-commerce, an industry least disrupted by The Bad Thing™. We were already a mostly remote team, so our work continued largely uninterrupted. As of July 2021, we have returned to our offices, and looking forward to the new Roaring Twenties.
I think the pandemic made me weird. Or weirder. I quarantined for 15 months, and when I finally got vaccinated and left my house again, I realized how much of a toll the isolation had taken on me. “The frog boils alive slowly,” a friend told me. He’s right, and it’s okay. We couldn’t expect to pause our lives and not pay a price. But I’m back. We’re back. Now let’s get paid.
I know you can figure out my email address easily, but to protect my time I’d strongly prefer that…
To defend my inbox, we mark most cold outreach efforts and all involuntary newsletter sign-ups as spam.
If you send us a message, I promise we’ll read it, but I may pass due to high demand for my time.

3 In general, I expect to be paid to speak. I will sometimes waive my fee for non-profit, community events if I am the opening keynote. At a minimum, I need my travel & hotel accommodation covered. [Press info]↩
