What if "care" was our new social construct? Our agreement to love, forgive, respect, and live in harmony with one another.

What You Can Expect
Motivation, inspiration, and laughter! That's what you can expect when I'm speaking to a crowd of enthusiastic listeners or reading from my debut novel, Salmon Croquettes. Being on stage comes naturally to me, but I don't take for granted I'm going to "kill it" without any effort. Each keynote is customized toward my audience, it's how I'm able to connect with them and be both authentic and vulnerable, at the same time.
I approach delicate subjects with honesty, authenticity, and vulnerability. I love challenging audiences of all kinds in a way that forces them to take pause. I've discovered that when we become introspective we can consider the possibilities of love and connection. Two things we need more of if we want to make the world a better place.
