Convolution Workshops!

After a last-minute cancellation last year, I’m returning to ConVolution in San Francisco for the 2015 convention. I’m really excited about this, I like Bay Area conventions, I’ve just always had scheduling conflicts since I moved.

Better yet, I’ll be on some really exciting panels!
