Speaker / Juror

By far, one of De Angela’s favorite things to do is to speak, present, and/or jury at/on conferences, meetups, competitions, and podcasts, etc. Since 2001, she have spoken, presented, or juried at several events. De Angela has spoken at the Purple Reign Conference, EYEO, Black Portraitures III, II & II: Revisited, NYC’s Creative Tech Week and Raising The Bar, AIGA’s Social Studies & Massaging Media 2 Conferences, and HOW’s Annual Design Conference. She has judged Tribeca Film Institute’s New Media Jury, Eyebeam’s Artist Residency, and HOW’s interactive design competition. She has served on the City of Philadelphia’s Mayor Michael Nutter’s committee to re-brand Philadelphia and participated in the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Website Brainstorming Charrette. She also hosts No Turn Unstoned, an online, radio show of curated mixes, and produces and co-hosts the Prince & Prince-related podcasts for Grown Folks Music’s Inside The Album and Behind The Film podcasts.
