I gave my first speech to a public audience when I was 13 and have not stopped since. My style is humorous, well-researched, engaging. In addition, to speaking, I have performed at a wide variety of comedy clubs and stages including the world famous Comedy Store, Ice House and Flappers Comedy Club. I have also been a featured storyteller at the Moth. Over the years, I have developed my signature programs but I can work with organizations to cover a wide variety of topics including authenticity, communication, productivity, and happiness.
Any of the Signature Programs can be modified to meet your needs. Additional topics are available, upon request.
