Speaking : San Francisco

S
an Francisco is one of my favorite cities in the world. Every time I roam the bustling streets, I feel alive. With ideas, promise, energy. I'm sure there's no reason to mention the overabundance of delicious food (WHY AM I ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT FOOD?!), but--really--I plan my days according to where my favorite restaurants sit in the city. Pathetic, I know.

I'm stoked to be headed back to San Francisco to speak as part of the Showit Tour on Tuesday, June 15, 2010. The best part of the tour is that there's different speakers in most cities, so it'll be exciting to see how everything unfolds around the nation. I'll be speaking about my web presence and how I use Showit to build my online brand...with a ton of time for Q+A! I'm especially excited because in select cities, the night will end with a concert benefitting Thirst Relief as a way to show continued support to such an amazing organization. Love it!

This iPhone photo was taken on our last San Fran trip. Oh, you know, the one where JD told me he wanted to be A BIKE COURIER. Just like that. He's one of the randomest guys I've ever encountered...I mean, he hasn't ridden a bike since he was ten...and it had training wheels! ;)
