Tell Me More
Okay, I’m going to stop speaking in the third person for now, if that’s okay with you. It’s kinda weird.
Here are the facts:
- The more people you put me in front of, the better I become
- I love telling stories and sharing my learnings (is that a word? sure it is)
- You can be sure I’ll bring both personality, professionalism, and practical insight to every single presentation

What to Expect When You Book Me
As a trained actor, my whole life has been spent learning how to captivate and entertain an audience. As a designer, I’m obsessed with making things that make people’s eyeballs melt. So I can pretty much guarantee a top-notch presentation every time.
You can also count on:
- Quick, professional communication with you via email or phone calls.
- A personal consulting session with me so I can understand exactly who your audience is and how I’m going to serve their specific needs.
- A visually stunning and engaging presentation that has been tailored to your audience.
- Promotion of your event to my 300,000+ subscribers, followers, and fans.
- A custom resource page for your audience created specifically for your attendees. It will contain my presentation slides, notes, and links to resources that I believe will be helpful to them.
- My expressed gratitude and appreciation. Because that means something right?
And if that’s not enough, I promise I won’t be one of those divas who asks for a personal dressing room stocked with a jar of red M&M’s, 3 bottles of Perrier, a fresh Starbucks Latte and a room temperature of exactly 83°F. Although I wouldn’t object to that at all.
Seriously though– I’m pretty easy to work with.
A Tiny Bit About Me
I’ve spent most of my life in the performing arts world, so naturally being in front of audiences is something I’m most comfortable with. I graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts where I studied all forms of performing arts including:
- Improv Comedy
- Vocal Production
- Dialects (including Standard American)
- Musical Theater
- Acting for Stage and Film
I am also the co-founder of WordPress plugin company, Warfare Plugins. Our flagship product, Social Warfare has become one of the most popular social sharing plugins for WordPress.
In terms of my platform:
- Social Media Examiner named my blog one of the Best Social Media Blogs of 2017
- My blog reaches over 90,000 unique readers per month
- My email list has over 25,000 subscribers
- Between all my social networks and communities I have over 300,000 followers
I have been happily married to my wife, Catarina, for nearly 5 years and we have two boys. We live outside of Los Angeles, Ca. In my free time I enjoy being active– why watch sports when you can go play them yourself?
