Back from MAX 2017
I started out my career as a graphic designer, getting my hands dirty on every design product Adobe could come up with. But after a few years I learned that I had an even bigger love for teaching Adobe products to designers in a classroom environment and speaking at conferences. So that’s what I did for the next 8 years, through out Europe, the US and Australia, before I joined Adobe in 2015.
Last year, I was a guest speaker at Adobe MAX 2016 in San Diego. And I was thrilled to learn that my suggestion to organise an Adobe InDesign session for advanced users was approved. Not only was I excited to put on my (classroom) trainer shoes again, I got to host a hands-on lab session for 100 people at a time. And the best thing of it all was that I got to do that 3 times in total during the MAX conference. Continue reading Back from MAX 2017, with a wonderful story
To finish off my list of speaking gig announcements I’m happy to report I’ll be going to Oslo in June to speak at the MakingDesign conference. This conference is held one week after PePcon so it would seem I’ll be missing home for a little while… Continue reading Speaking at MakingDesign in Oslo

My Adobe MAX 2014 report
I just got back from my first Adobe MAX 2014 in Los Angeles and have to say I was impressed with the event organisation. Long time ago I attended the only 2 MAX editions that were organised in Europe. These were in Barcelona 2007 and Milan 2008. But the original MAX in L.A. is a whole different ball game. The scale of the event was a lot larger and felt better organised and more professional. Just like the previous years Adobe chose the L.A. Convention Center as their primary location for all the networking, sessions and hands-on labs. While the main keynotes and “Sneaks” were held in the Nokia Theatre across the street. And these facilities were easily able to hold the nearly 5.000 attendees while keeping them happy and entertained. Here’s my Adobe MAX 2014 report. Continue reading My Adobe MAX 2014 report
I can’t express how excited I am to be able to attend Adobe MAX this year in Los Angeles. But it’s not all fun and play, no no no. I’ll be working there as a technical assistant, supporting the hands-on workshops and other sessions.
