I help leaders in government, labor, business and advocacy organizations shape their messages and connect with their audiences.
I’ve been the lead speechwriter on national election campaigns, coached leaders for televised debates, and written speeches for everything from government budgets to countless keynotes.
And I coach speakers and the people who support them on personal leadership communications.
Want to move audiences to action in support of your big idea? We should talk.

I’m always telling you to tell stories… so for the 50th episode of the podcast, I’m going to share one of my own. It’s about what a dead pigeon taught me about being a good speechwriter.
Coming up empty as you try to write your speech? Wondering why your presentations aren’t landing quite as well as you know they should? You probably know you should connect emotionally with your audience — but maybe you need to think through just what kind of emotional connection you’re both looking for.
