My Story

 Shy me, with Dad

Shy me, with Dad

Most don't believe me, but I was a shy timid kid growing up first in Canada and then in the mountains of Colorado.  I found my outlet in public speaking and then in acting.

Still, I had to learn how to connect with people, be vulnerable, tell a story - my story - and as I did, I learned I was not alone.   I got my degree in Speech Communication with a minor in acting and an emphasis on public communication, business communication, and family communication.  I did my honors thesis on communication in dysfunctional relationships.

I moved around a lot, restless and adventurous.  I did sales, was a part of start ups, acted, directed, coached and taught public speaking.

From the kid who could barely speak, I'm excited to be an award winning speaker, top sales generator, actor, and proud father.

I coach storytelling, vulnerability, and effective communication to organizations, companies, individuals and families. I have worked with ages 5 to 75.

As founder of Kingfisher, I invite you to join with me on the journey as we wish to connect with each other, make an impact beyond ourselves and be vulnerable to one another building connections rather than barriers.

Let us all encourage one another to be impactful waves that create other impactful waves that transform our world into something better for all of us. I believe we can!
