SPEAKER

I HAVE BEEN AN EVENT LEADER AND GUEST SPEAKER SINCE 1986. FOR THE MOST part, over the last 25 years, the events that I have led focus primarily on music education. I also present, from time to time, on the topic of Behavioral Mechanics, as well as long-term relationships.

As my organization has grown internationally, and the conversation about the importance of creativity has become more mainstream, I have begun presenting at higher profile events. Looking ahead to the immediate future I see that my role as the spokesperson for my organization will expand significantly. This is a unique time in human history and the need for us to understand the need for humanity to develop its creative capability, has never been more important.

RECENT PRESENTATIONS

TEDxTalk: How music can future-proof your brain

Jacksonville, FL

I was very excited to speak at this prestigious TEDx event that showcased a broad spectrum of voices from an array of areas of thought, work, and life. It was a privilege to speak about the need to redefine and re-present music education in a way that is both more accessible, and far more relevant to the technologically-driven world we are heading into.
