I was lucky to be one of the people who got to speak at the first ever Ignite Phoenix a month ago. The night was a complete blast with 16 presenters each doing a 5min talk on something they’re passionate about. Topics ranged from OCD, to pinhole photography to firewalking to geese in a public library. I talked about music, education, becoming your own teacher and how to accelerate breakthroughs. Huge props to and Roger Williams for pulling off a fantastic event and Clintus McGintus for filming and producing all the videos from the night. You can watch my talk below and you can catch all the other ones here on And if you’re interested in presenting at the next one, they’re now recruiting speakers for that one on Oct 28th.

    You also nailed the whole purpose of the event – to get people to talk, share, and make connections. Thanks for being a part of it, Sean!
