Shy me, with Dad

Shy me, with Dad

Most people don’t believe me, but I was a shy, timid kid growing up…

first in Canada and then in the mountains of Colorado. I found my voice in public speaking, and then in acting.

Still, I had to learn how to connect with people, be vulnerable, tell a story - my story - and as I did, I learned I was not alone. I got my degree in Speech Communication with a minor in acting and an emphasis on public communication, business communication, and family communication. I completed my honors thesis on communication in dysfunctional relationships.

I moved around a lot, restless and adventurous. I worked in sales, was a part of start ups, acted, directed, coached and taught public speaking.

From the kid who could barely speak, I'm excited to now be an award-winning speaker, top sales generator, actor, and proud husband and father.

I coach connection through storytelling and vulnerability, and help people of all ages in all environments develop more effective communication.

I invite you to join with me on the journey as we wish to connect with each other, make an impact beyond ourselves and be vulnerable to one another building connections rather than barriers.

Let us all encourage one another to be impactful waves that create other impactful waves that transform our world into something better for all of us. I believe we can!

 One of my classes at Leaders of Tomorrow. They don't think I'm shy either. Although most of my work is with adults, I enjoy all ages!
