Non-profits, churches, civic organizations, schools, and businesses bring me in to inspire and motivate. I have presented trainings, sermons, classes, workshops, seminars, and at men’s retreats. I’ve been an accomplished leader and speaker in Toastmasters for over a dozen years as well as a semi-finalist in the World Championship of Public Speaking.


I’ve been a volunteer at a local center for ten years. I know the ins-and-outs of how things operate and understand the mission and goals. At our local fundraising banquet, the years I have keynoted have broken records on engagement and donations, above nationally recognized speakers.

Having a wife as an event planner and being her assistant, as well as organizing many of my own events, I understand the importance of planning and being on the same page. You can count on me to be responsive, low-maintenance, and flexible before, during, and after your event.

Youth groups: I enjoy changing their mindset from being good enough to simply doing good.
