Are you terrified of public speaking? Have you read all the books and articles, but nothing seems to help? Do you want to become passionate, powerful, and persuasive?

I teach by example. I explain what I am doing and how I am doing it. No matter what the topic or style I can and will break it down for you.


But that's just the beginning. I have years of experience with every form of public speaking there is.

After graduating college I began working in politics. I worked on multiple campaigns where I was promoted to captain, then coordinator, and finally acting manager. I won all of my campaigns.

In college I was the captain of the mock trial team, but we didn't have a coach. This meant that I was the captain, coach, and administrator.

In high school I was the captain of the speech and debate team, most awarded speaker for the model United Nations team, and my senior year I became the coach of my new schools speech team.

Even before high school I was where you would expect me to be. The leading role in theater, the funny kid among my friends, and I loved to talk.

My first time in the newspaper was when I was six. My first time on television was when I was eight. At 14 I was a youth correspondent for KRCB Radio.


I am familiar with every form of public speaking from oratory to improvisation. I have even performed stand up comedy. I have trained students and professionals of all ages. I am comfortable with any problem related to speech.

Public Speaking

I have over two decades of public speaking experience.

My work experience includes sales manager, campaign manager, and vice president of a mutual fund. I am intimately familiar with every form of public speaking conceptually and through real world experience.

In college I was captain then coach of the mock trial team (American Mock Trial Association.).

In high school I started teaching public speaking. Before that I was captain then coach of the speech and debate team. (National Forensics League). I also became the most awarded speaker on the MUN team, but was not allowed to run for leadership due to time constraints.

In middle and elementary school I was in theater. I was in every performance possible. I was usually a lead but not always.

When I was eight I was on TV for the first time. At six I was in the newspapers.

Whatever your needs are I can help. I teach by example and you will see exactly what I am doing while I explain how you can do it too.

Do you have a friend you want to officially beat in a debate? Are my fees too high? Do you like showing off in front of people? If this sounds like you than bringing a friend is the perfect solution! Friends are only 10$ more making it fun and cheap!  But all good things must end. The largest a group can be is six persons, no more. More than six is just redundant unless... read more

I have received this question many times in many forms. The short version is it depends on what you, the student, needs. Do you (or your children) need speaking confidence? To stop stuttering? To speak loudly and proudly? But below are some specific skills and abilities I can teach in addition to whatever you need. Proper body movement while speaking - foot work, hand gestures, even facial... read more
