My Speaking Events

When I speak, my goal isn’t just to inspire, but to inspire people based on truth. The experiences, topics and discussions are based on real personal encounters. My mission is to help you overcome whatever adversity is hitting your life by taking you through how I escaped my own darkness. The first step is admitting that there is a problem, which triggers the mission of this page…A place to be real with yourself and real with others.
I speak to audiences of all sizes, ages, demographics and backgrounds. My smallest seminar was 8 people, while my largest so far was over 200 listeners. I absolutely love speaking to people with the motivation to help. Listeners find my seminars to be engaging, as I involve various elements including: sharing my story, tips to overcome challenges and a Q & A that often becomes raw and deep with the audience. My goal is to be vulnerable with the audience so they learn to be vulnerable in their day to day life. Common topics during speaking events include depression, suicide, mental health, faith, coping with self doubt, self development, positive thinking, writing and action planning.

Upcoming Events:

  • John W. North High School | Riverside, CA | November 14, 2018
