Recent and Upcoming Appearances

 

Update, 1 – 13 – 2017: Due to the theft of my computer in November 2016, my ability to regularly update my appearance page was compromised. This resulted in a lack of updates in December 2016. Fortunately, updates have now been restored, and presentations from mid-November 2016 (when my computer was stolen) will remain on this page for archival purposes, and will not be archived in the past appearances page until April 2017, so that viewers can see what presentations occurred during the lack of updates.]

 

 

Below is a list of my current scheduled appearances.

This page is updated and modified whenever a new appearance is confirmed.

If an appearance is cancelled it will be removed from the list ASAP. 

Contact me for any specific times that any event will be held.
