I’m a Speaker.


Giving a talk is one of the most vulnerable things a person can do. At least that’s how it is for me as I dive deep sharing my creative process, but more so delving into the obstacles and vulnerabilities that make me a creative, often learning something new about myself in the process and sharing that with my audience.

Let’s Talk

I inspire audiences who want to enrich and deepen their creativity—perhaps they’ve felt blocked due to a personal obstacle or an outside force. In my talks I make myself vulnerable and take the audience on a tour of my quirky brain, and the way I think and work, all the while demonstrating how embracing our challenges can lead us all to greater creativity and to think in new and unique ways.
