About the Speaker

Michael Allen Nesmith, a Chicago native, is a senior art director at Amazon's HQ in Seattle. He's also a TEDx speaker and a universal design practitioner. He was born into a deaf-culture family using ASL (American Sign Language) as the primary language. He attended Gallaudet University (an all-deaf college) in Washington DC for undergraduate studies and earned his MFA in visual communication design at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He began his advertising career in W+K12, an experimental advertising school within Wieden+Kennedy. Throughout his career, Michael’s visual/conceptual way of thinking and problem solving have served him both as an asset and a challenge. Learn more about him at michaelallennesmith.com.
