Live sketching at conferences

Through the use of images, text, and diagrams, these notes take advantage of the "visual thinker" mind's penchant for make sense of - and understanding - information with pictures.

Sketchnotes are purposeful synthesized visualizations of your thoughts. Live sketching is taking notes creatively to communicate ideas in an engaging way, on the spot. I can visualize your thoughts at your next event with live sketching.

Sketchnotes have the power to make things more clear!

My role


I sketch live.

My role is to grasp the essence of talks to transform words and abstract concepts into meaningful visualizations. Making those thoughts tangible allows everyone to be on the same page and to see how their ideas interconnect.
