I’ve been speaking at events around the world since 2010. Every show is different, and it’s a true privilege to be able to tell stories, engage and educate audiences, and hopefully leave a mark on attendees. From global keynotes in front of 4,000+ attendees to emceeing events for LinkedIn, Glassdoor, and UNLEASH to TED-style festival talks I’ve had the privilege of presenting in front of audiences in three continents.


Much love,
