Appearances/Book Reviews/Podcasts

I am a public speaker and author. I’ve appeared in many places, both online and offline.

I’ve made some wonderful connections with great people, and have appeared on many different sites, for different reasons… for contributions to round-up posts and also for interviews, podcasts, and book reviews.

If you would like me to appear on YOUR site OR book me for a speaking event, just email me!
