Speaking

2013

Feb. 20: Warby Parker asked me to serve as a brand ambassador during one of its Social Media Week New York Google Hangouts, offering opinions and suggestions to would-be customers on their frames.

I also have been asked, on occasion, to speak at the university level on how social media applies to the fields of journalism and PR.
