What do you hope to get out of this meetup?

I want to sketch faster. Like, way faster. But without sacrificing the fidelity of the end product. How to quickly decide what to capture, what to skip, when it's okay to annotate, etc.

What's your experience with sketchnoting so far?

Medium-ish. I have a background in fine arts and love sketching, but I rarely get to do it! :(

What do you love most about sketchnoting/visual note-taking?

I'm a visual communicator by nature -- and I think it's absolutely vital to use visual tools for effective communication in professional settings. You can break down creative barriers by empowering people to use their hands, even if they're intimidated at first. I love helping people reach that moment of epiphany.


Lean/ UX geek with a special interest in leveraging visual communication frameworks to bring out the creativity in everyone. Hope to incorporate sketch-noting into my workflow!
