I have lectured across the United States and around the world in locations as diverse as Europe, China, Antarctica, the Galapagos and the Arctic. I have given hundreds of presentations on a wide range of topics including writing, creativity, photography, history, places, magic, and storytelling.
Since I am a photographer and filmmaker, all my presentations are richly illustrated with photographs and short films. I use my experience as a storyteller and my performance of magic to craft presentations that are thought provoking, visually compelling and entertaining. My talks are not "let me read the text" or "sorry you can't see the images" PowerPoints. They are heartfelt and intelligent presentations about life.
In these talks, which last 45-60 minuets, I take my audiences to other places and other times. To other worlds.
In some, I will share my insights on the creative process, storytelling, and producing media. My goal as a presenter is to touch a responsive chord. To open the eyes and touch the hearts of my audience.
I am always making new films, refreshing existing talks, and developing new presentations.
