My presentations are fun, motivating adventures full of energy and creativity. Most importantly audiences always walk away with tangible ideas and easy-to-apply learning that they can start using right away.
Public speaking is another one of my passions. I truly enjoy sharing ideas and connecting with audiences. Bring me in to fire up your employees, association & club members, or convention & seminar attendees.

I started giving speeches in University when I co-chaired a community outreach program geared towards teaching children about math, science and engineering. We gave talks called "Engineering is Everywhere" (not just to kids, but parents and teachers too) and "Paths to an Engineering Degree". We ran educational programs on electricity, earthquakes and aerodynamics for children.
