speaking and appearances

I love talking to groups, small and large, whether I’m sharing my passion for reality television, helping someone be more effective on social media, or using improvisational comedy to strengthen a team’s communication.

I’m a trained improviser who has honed my presentation and on-stage skills by performing in and hosting improv comedy shows; moderating debates and presenting at awards shows; and by teaching for more than 13 years. I’m very comfortable in front of people and on-camera. (Here’s what others have said.)

You can contact me directly to arrange any kind of appearance, from a lecture to consulting. Here’s how I can help you:

  1. I can share my ideas or experiences by delivering a speech or lecture that will engage and inspire audiences, large or small. For example, I once led the keynote at the country’s largest conference of college journalists, teaching nearly one thousand students how to use the techniques of improv to strengthen their journalism.
  2. I can consult and lead workshops on topics relating to reality television, blogging, social media, popular culture, student media, nonfiction writing, and more. I’m open to working with any type of group, from small student organizations to large corporate gatherings.
  3. I’m available for media appearances and interviews, via phone or in person. I’m frequently interviewed by journalists, in print and on the radio; have appeared on live television as a talking head many times; and have been a guest on Katie Couric’s daytime talk show.
  4. If you’re a teacher using my work in class, I’ll gladly talk with your students–at least by Skype, or in person if I can.

Send me an e-mail message today and let’s talk. I look forward to hearing from you.
