Hi, I'm Ashton

I used to take page after page of notes in meetings and lectures, only to realize that I had absorbed almost nothing. I was frustrated and anxious, feeling like I couldn’t keep up. Then, even though I barely knew how to draw, I tried my first sketchnote—and my mind was blown! It was fun! It was easy! And I remembered the material! Since then, I’ve made sketchnoting into a career. As a graphic recorder (or professional sketchnoter), I’ve used these same techniques to live-illustrate over 2200 seminars, lectures, and meetings all over North America. I’ve worked with corporations from Microsoft to Amazon.

Now I’m on a mission to teach other people how to harness their creativity, embrace imperfection, and capture information in new, powerful, and fun ways.
