I tailor each show for the specific audience. I can make a show about entertaining an audience for a good time or keep a student body engaged while speaking about education and growth.

I communicate the importance of STEM education, the power of a Growth Mindset (as described by Stanford Psychologist Carol Dweck), Grit (Angela Duckworth) and my education story (public education, MIT, BSU) through words, examples, and stories. I incorporate juggling, balancing, humor and sometimes Guinness World Record attempts to create powerful and memorable impressions. I can speak anywhere from 90 seconds to an hour with an audience-specific message.
