I’ve been a professional speaker for over 8 years. My experience as a speaker is broad: I’ve given keynote speeches at colleges, parishes, business clubs, and plenty of Theology on Taps (which I secretly love the most).
I’ve been an entrepreneur for most of my adult life. I founded and led three separate companies in Silicon Valley after leaving a career on Wall Street. I think that I also hold the distinction of the only Silicon Valley entrepreneur who spent five years in seminary formation (three of those in Rome, at the Pontifical North American College), only to discover my true vocation there: to be an entrepreneur for the Church.
As a speaker, I’m high-energy. I get fired up easily, especially when I’m speaking about things I love. I’m interactive, sometimes funny, and usually thought-provoking. My goal is to leave the audience better than I met them and to meet your objectives for the speaker that you choose to bring to your event.
Choosing a speaker is not easy. I take pride in walking with you every step of the way throughout the process to make you comfortable that I’m the right person for your particular engagement.
My Personal Vocation
My unique, personal vocation is the creativity of God. I think, pray, and talk about it constantly. I’m an entrepreneur because it’s a special way of participating in the divine creativity. If I weren’t an entrepreneur, I’d probably be an artist! (In fact, I come from a family of artists, and I keep finding myself gravitating to artistic entrepreneurial ventures, like wine-making, restaurants, and writing/publishing).
I eat, breathe, and sleep this. I’m so passionate about the creativity of God as it relates to unique, personal vocation that, as I’m writing this, I’m nearly jumping out of my seat to express myself. Every single person is the fruit of God’s creative act. Each person is an unrepeatable creation that started in the mind of God and was loved into being by Him. The most beautiful part of God’s artistry is that he’s like an artist who breathes life into a masterpiece, and then allows the artwork to complete the itself. What a different kind of artist! And you and I are the masterpiece.
I enjoy speaking about the creativity of God in the following spheres, including the following:
- Personal Vocation – God’s Creativity At Work in You
- Theology of the Body – the Divine Creativity and Us
- Entrepreneurship: Co-Creators with God
- The Creative Renewal of the Church
- Sports & Fitness in the New Evangelization
- And many more
I look forward to learning more about your event, and how I can serve you.
