You can live the life YOU desire.
It all starts with that one story.

I didn't set out to become a personal brand, a paid speaker, or a professional podcaster. But all three happened. And they happened quickly.

It all began on March 5, 2018.

My grandmother was dying, and I felt compelled to share the profound impact she'd had on my life when she took me around the world when I was a teenager. I also wanted to connect with people who feel as strongly as I do about the importance of travel in young people's lives.

To accomplish these two goals, I launched a podcast and started sharing my story with the world. I had zero broadcasting experience, no social following, and not a single mentor to speak of.

I was just an ordinary suburban dad with a story to share.

For the first time in my life,
I began unleashing my creativity
without fear of judgment.

And that's when things started happening.

Just a few months later, I got a paid podcasting gig and received my first invitation to speak at an event.

I’ve since spoken on stage at the New York Times Travel Show (twice!), TravelCon, and at the Family Travel Association Summit—the world's largest family travel trade conference where I'll be speaking again this fall.

And it all started with that one story. (Thanks again, Grandma!)

The growth I’ve experienced
in a little over a year is both
humbling and astounding.

My speaking business (that I never planned on having) is growing, and my personal network now includes hundreds of successful entrepreneurs across a variety of industries.

My progress was swift, but it was not an accident.

Looking back on my actions during that first year, I see a clear and repeatable blueprint that I'm thrilled to share with those who need it.

I can help your audience do exactly what I did: create the life THEY want by telling the story THEY need to tell.

Keep their fires burning!

The most shocking thing I’ve learned in my brief entrepreneurial journey is how many individuals are out there doing exactly what I used to—living in fear and allowing their creative fires to suffocate under the weight of responsibility.

If they don’t take action soon, the fire may go out forever—just like mine nearly did.

I can’t let that happen. Not without a fight.

I look forward to speaking with you.
