Watch my 2017 TEDx talk:
Since 2012, I've been speaking publicly. I've also been teaching social-emotional learning (SEL) throughout Southern California at high schools, after school programs, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Penny Lane Centers, the Los Angeles LGBT Center, and Los Angeles Central Juvenile Hall.
I'm also an LGBTQ "inner-advocate" and I give workshops and presentations for universities, conferences, and organizations across the United States on anti-bullying, the importance of inner-advocacy, how to prevent queerphobia among new generations, and how to raise LGBTQ allies.
I'm a grateful PFLAG Los Angeles board member and since 2015, I've been part of our Los Angeles' speakers bureau.
In 2017, I gave my first TEDx talk at TEDxCSULB’s Threads Undone. I'm grateful that my talk continues to be used for educational and training purposes across the U.S., and has even been translated into Portuguese for a popular parenting site in Brazil.
I've been fortunate to be a guest on a variety of popular podcasts speaking on topics related to spirituality, what led me down the spiritual path, my journey to sobriety, and why I believe life is a road trip to love.
I'd love the opportunity to speak with you and/or your group. My public speaking rates vary depending on the organization, location, time, and topic.
