Just kidding. This is real! Milwaukee!!! #ddctalltales #speakingfiasco #nervousness #milwaukee #wisconsin #excitedtotellyerstory #discoveryworld #now 4h

draplin Wanna know what it looks like when you throw away a career in front of 3,000 people? Something like this. @jaredeberhardt took this shot of me doing my soundcheck for @tedxportland, minutes away from the place filling all the way up. That was pretty weird, and pretty fun. Thanks, Portland! #tedxpdx #ddc #sweat #showbusiness #3000people #goingforit #canadiantuxedo #kellerauditorium #pdx 1w
