I understand the challenge of finding the right speaker.
I’ve been and still attend conferences and workshops for my own personal development. I’ve been the event coordinator in charge of every aspect from the caterer to the speaker (and of course, all the complaints, right?). And I’ve been the speaker. All three have given me a unique perspective of every aspect for all involved.
It sure didn’t take long to realize that a key success of an event quickly came down to the quality of the speakers. If they nailed it, we had a great event. If they didn’t, well…
Like you, I found myself doing a ton of research. And as someone who has been in your shoes, my goal is to make sure this page provides you with everything you need to make the best possible decision.
I work hard to be one of your event’s fan favorite speaker. I will come early and stay late. I want to get a feel of the live event, talk to attendees, and be a natural part of the process. Nothing beats getting a true pulse for the event and hearing from attendees their side of the story.
And I don’t do boring.
I want to be the easiest speaker to work with from understanding what I could potentially offer you to the end review hopefully celebrating a great event with you!

A Little Bit About Me
I’m a husband of one and father of five. Yeah, five. We live in the suburbs of Chicago and active in our community and church. We love sports, competition, music, and laughter. I’m a nutrition and fitness nut and an avid reader.
My education and experience is eclectic from ministry and non-profit to corporate. I’ve sat behind a desk and been a highly successful business traveler. But most of all, I understand people and know how to communicate and connect.
I’ve spoken for over two decades to small groups of people to over 6000. I love the median of speaking and connecting with people. I enjoy seeing them laugh and learn which is the absolute best combination.
To learn more about me, please visit my About Me page on this site.
My Most Requested Topics
I speak on topics related to being productive, health through nutrition and fitness, and the importance of rest. All topics lead to the importance of finding your energy edge to save time and attain greater results.
My topics can be presented as a keynote or also in a workshop, half-day, or in some cases, full-day seminar version. Please let me know what is best for you and we can go from there.
My win is finding and fulfilling the outcome you want to create. This isn’t about me but doing whatever I can to make your event a success.

The Secret Shame of High Performers and How to Overcome It
High Performers can produce, no doubt about it. The amount of productivity and results that comes out of a high performer is impressive. Crank it out and getter done. Boo-yah. Drop the mic. But like most things, there’s more to the story and something always deeper than the surface. The reality is others see our “on stage” not our “back stage” and the toll that not resting is doing to us physically, mentally, and emotionally. High Performers are intelligent and know they need to rest more but just don’t do it. Here are four inner thoughts that accompany the secret shame of high performing professionals:
- Minimize rest
- Avoid rest at all costs
- Justify rest as optional
- Fear rest
How to Create Your Own Afternoon 5 Hour Energy Hack
Afternoons can be the drudgery of any person who controls their day. It’s like the right of passage from a productive morning to getting to our evening. We have to go through it but most of the time it’s simply a means to an end. But what if we looked at the afternoon differently and chose to create our own hack that is healthier and actually more effective? Here are three questions to learn to ask yourself to create your own afternoon 5 hour energy hack:
- Why is my energy low right now?
