On June 18, 2015, I was fired by my employer at a Lunch Meeting. My son was 2 years old and my wife was 6 1/2 months pregnant with our second child. It was Father's Day weekend! That weekend, I got hungry and committed to living the Professional Speaking Dream I had been "talking" about for years.
With the support of my family and friends, I used the skills I earned as a student leader, award-winning toy store manager, salesperson, educator, event planner and entertainer to transform the ultimate "burnt meal" into a tasty 5-Star Masterpiece!
I'm now invited teach my proven recipe for transforming your professional aspirations into reality with professional associations, corporations, schools, colleges, universities, nonprofits, and civic groups around the world. The same recipe I have used to go from unemployed to being recognized by the National Speakers Association in 2022 as one of the top Professional Speakers on the planet.
When I'm not speaking, I practices what I teach. I currently serves as a volunteer and Board Chair for the Non-Profit organization Hustle PHX. Their team of staff and volunteers provide aspiring entrepreneurs in underserved urban communities with the resources needed to start and operate thriving businesses.
