Announcement: GoKateShoot to Speak at ThirstDC

Hey team! If you follow the blog, you know that I've become great friends with the ThirstDC team. I first met co-founders Eric and Lori at Busboys and Poets five months ago (at this exact documented moment, in fact), and they've been trying to get me to speak ever since. For those of you who aren't familiar, ThirstDC is like a sexier version of TED, with booze, and backed by the Smithsonian. Yes, the Smithsonian of dinosaurs and rocket ships and all the other cool, smart stuff down near the monuments. They're hype for Thirst and you should be too! Expert speakers give 10-20 minute talks on wild topics only somewhat related to their field; think a rocket scientist discussing dating, for instance. Rad! The Thirst team does an awesome job talking about themselves HERE, so check that out for more info.

I'm speaking at ThirstDC on May 31 and you should come. Yikes, I know! Some of the other speakers have announced their talks, while some are keeping theirs a secret until later. Me being me and generally overexcited about damn near everything, announced my talk already. I'll be speaking about how people use each other, turning the concept on its head to redefine what it means to feel used...and how that's an awesome thing. And you're all, "What?But you're a photographer who talks about style! What does this have anything to do with anything?!" to which I would reply, "Everything has everything to do with everything, don't worry! Get your ticket, get dressed up and come out to find out. Tickets are live and you can get them HERE. DO IT! Come watch me stand up in front of a sold out, 300+ person crowd and wax poetic on all things social, stylish, and artistic (potentially having a moment in the process, but hopefully not). It will be fiesty, it will be random, and it will be entertaining, if anything.

The Details:
May 31, 2012, 7-11pm
