ABOUT ME

Married in 2003 and diagnosed five years later with Asperger syndrome, I have committed myself to relentless self-improvement — sometimes to a comical extent. As a best-selling author and nationally sought-after speaker, I’ve shared the stage with Dr. Temple Grandin, John Elder Robison, Dr. Barry Prizant, Dr. Stephen Shore, Alex Plank, and many others. And I’d love to take the stage at your next event!

STAGE PRESENCE

Every speaker is different. With almost twenty years of corporate experience and creative roots in comedy, satire, and on-stage performance, I approach my keynotes and events as I would a stand-up comedy show: they’re fun and insightful to make an impact. People respond well when they’re having a great time, so that’s what I offer.
