I’m a professor, author, and consultant with over 20 years’ experience teaching communication and public speaking courses to students of various ages and backgrounds. I provide public speaking instruction, guidance, and support in a clear and engaging manner. I specialize in helping people manage and overcome their fear of public speaking, and I offer practical tips and strategies for organizing and delivering an effective speech, presentation, or job interview.
I was the third highest-rated professor in America on RateMyProfessors.com in 2012. That same year, I was included in "The Best 300 Professors in America," published by The Princeton Review. I’m the author and narrator of "Finish Your Damn Speech! (A Public Speaking Book for People Who Hate Public Speaking)." I love teaching and helping people succeed!
Besides teaching and tutoring, I enjoy music, movies, hiking, photography, and playing basketball and "Magic: The Gathering."
Thanks again for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you!
