I am honored and pleased to announce that I will be presenting as part of the TEDx San Diego line-up this December, 2011. I am very excited to bring my 3D street painting story to the stage and share ideas, images and reflections on how this art form has influenced and improved the advancement of creative expression for a wide global audience.

Update on my participation in the TEDx Youth @ San Diego event. Big congrats go to everyone at Canyon Crest Academy for their inspiring and professionally run event – what a magical experience!!!! The students, the faculty, parents, friends, Tedsters, Sharp support team members and TEDx San Diego all deserve big kudos for their hard work. Special thanks go to Kellie, Lesa and Tracy for supporting me personally – THANK YOU ladies!!!!! Couldn’t have done it without you. And yes, I am officially over my stage fright now.
In conjunction with my talk, I created a 3d image based on the theme of the event: ‘The World in Our Grasp.’ I used the puzzle pieces to symbolize that we are all part of the global community and we each have our unique and necessary part to play. It was received very well and students really enjoyed playing with it. I even managed to get an alligator and a dog on the piece through the course of the day. That is a street painting first I believe.
