Hi, I’m Desi. As a former professional athlete, an international speaker and coach for over 15 years as well as a leader in the design industry for over 20 years, I have over two decades of transferrable training and experience in knowing how to speak so that others will listen.

My audiences get challenged to get out of their comfort zone, inspiring them to break through barriers that have stopped forward movement, and sharing, practical, actionable approaches or strategies that can be used immediately.

There are a number of speaking topics that can be chosen from.

To request information on hiring me to speak at your event or to request a Press Kit, reach out via my Contact page.

“In a short time, he’s taught us a lot about the best practices, tools & techniques of the trade. Desi is conscientious about the details, without losing sight of the big picture”

Nathaniel Anderson, Qlik

“Desi is very passionate about UX and his enthusiasm is contagious. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing him facilitate several UX Design workshops and regardless of the amount of attendees, he always seems to be in control.”
