Speaking Engagements

Need an interesting and engaging speaker for your event?

I've been very fortunate to have an amazing career and experiences that make for great talks. From working James Bond style military contracts at places with tank crossings, to teaching at PayPal wearing a pirate costume. Fun aside, I've raised millions for my startups, built websites with more traffic than major newspapers, and recently became a father. I love the connections between technology and society and any talks related to small business marketing.

  • I'm an experienced live speaker.
  • I have case studies in marketing.
  • I can provide actual analysis.
  • Custom tailored presentations.

Everything I say is derived from my own experiences, my goal is to give the best advice I can in the most palatable way I know how. Usually this goes well and I get applause. I make no guarantees about the knowledge I share, it is up to your audience to use or ignore it wisely.

I Can Talk The Talk

Wool

Hugh Howey

For once science fiction that happens under ground instead of outer space. A pretty good book that focuses more on people and less on technology, almost to a fault. Absolutely earns the right to be in the top hundred science fiction books ever written.

The Pleasure Of My Company

Steve Martin

Who knew Steve martin wrote books? Even better, who knew they were a pleasure to read. This book is light and feel good.

Rain Storm

Barry Eisler

When I read this it was the third and final book in the John Rain series, so there is a bit of a conclusion here.

Stephen King

Stephen King's book about time travel and the assassination of JFK by Lee Oswald is very good writing applied to a very poor and tired plot. Also was he paid by the CIA to write this as fictional propaganda?
