public speaking

Public Speaking Since 1979

At least, that's when I started to make the newspaper for debate & oral interpretation competitions.  I suppose my earliest training startedwhen I was around 6 years old in church. I share my intellectual capital on several topics . Email Me questions / suggestions about me speaking @ your upcoming event.  My style of public speaking is interactive, improvisational, & musical.   I'm available for conferences, parent groups, homeschoolers, educational workshops, Professional Development for teachers, or for another TED Talk.   It's never to early to book


Music.  Education.  Healthy Living.  Multiple Sclerosis.  Performers With Disabilities. Human Rights.  Parenting.  Marriage.  Songwriting.  Entrepreneurship. The Performing Arts. Technology & the Arts. The Voice.  Sound Vibrations.  Improvisation. Theatre Arts. The Art of Storytelling.
