Speaking of Art and Technology

I love the ways that art intersects with technology, math, science and nature.

I have spoken on this subject at galleries, schools and universities, conferences, and public events such as TEDx Orlando, Creative Tech Week NYC, Pecha Kucha and Nerd Nite. I can adjust my presentation to fit your audience, whether it’s made up of artists, programmers, the general public, or children. If you would like me to speak at your event, please contact me.

What a 1,000-mile bicycle tour does to a marriage: my wife Amy Selikoff and I, both individual presenters at past PechaKucha Nights in Orlando, Florida, teamed up for the first time on May 19th, 2013 to tell how we road tested our relationship!
