Creative Solutions Faster 

Through the Power of Science & Play



A Real Scientist That's Fun & Relatable

They exist, promise! I happen to be one of them. I distill complex content into a delicious cocktail of knowledge, inspiration, and action. I use the power of science & play to foster innovation and strong leadership through untapped creativity and everyday fear management. Drawing upon my twenty years of experience in the sciences, I steep all my events in evidence based strategies that matter to your daily life.


Delivering Actionable Tools & Takeaways Rooted in Scientific Research

Unlike most motivational speakers who teach about innovation, creativity, and leadership, my role as a scholar-practitioner allows me to provide the level of evidence based research needed for today's hyper-discerning audience.  


More Than Just a Talk, An Experience

Delivering a memorable experience driven by story & connection is an absolute top priority. Interactivity and A-Ha moments abound!


Unique & Customized 

Audiences want a unique experience where they can feel understood and seen. I tailor all my events to meet you where you and your community are at, with content and stories that truly matter to you. 


Authentic, Honest, & Intimate Storytelling

We learn best through story, especially when those stories are told by those who lived them. I share relevant and timely stories from my own adventures to bring my content to life & connect to listeners.
