I use live scribing to capture information and bring it to life.

As an artist I thrive on learning new things. When I am at a class, a conference, or a political event like a march, I take a lot of notes -- not just on what is being said, but on who is saying it and how. Later I scan the notes and color them so other people can read and learn from them too.

I can also scribe big in front of a room, to illustrate a conversation as it happens and keep an audience engaged and on track. I perform this kind of scribing with my employer 8works, as well as on a volunteer basis with nonprofits like SURJ Sacred Heart.

Would you like me to scribe your event? Please reach out to me at beier.elizabeth@gmail.com.
