About this Speaker
In addition to my work in the entertainment industry, I apply decades of expertise in theater, tv and film, to the art of public speaking. I want to put people with important messages onto the big stage and the big screen. I'm the executive producer of Speakers Who Dare, and was executive producer of TEDxLincolnSquare. I choreographed the series Black Box on ABC, The Affair on Showtime, Rescue Me on Fox, and John Turturro’s Romance and Cigarettes, where I was awarded a Golden Thumb Award from Roger Ebert. The series I directed, Sublets, won Best Comedy at the Vancouver Web-Festival. My film, Right Livelihood A Journey To Here won Best Documentary Short of 2019 at The Olympus Film Festival in LA. And I was given the honor of being awarded Top Director of 2019 by The International Association of Top Professionals. The Big Talk Over Dinner is my newest series about people having mindful conversations about hard stuff, like politics, race, immigration, gender and leadership over dinner. I also hosts The Big Talk an award winning podcast on iTunes.
