FEARLESS COMMUNICATORS

As a kid growing up in Miami, FL, I hated my voice.  I would answer the phone and people assumed they were talking to a girl.  The playground was also ripe and fertile ground for harassment and bullying.  There was nothing I could do to mask the voice, so I kept quiet and I shut down.

For someone who hated drawing attention to himself, it is ironic that I was a professional actor for 15 years.  While in graduate school at UCSD, I had the privilege of working with internationally renowned voice teachers who gave me the tools and confidence to own my voice and harness its power.  While at UCSD I taught Public Speaking to undergraduates.  It was a natural calling to work with people to push pass their fear of public speech and find the strength and beauty of their voice.  It was in these classrooms that I discovered the ability to “Sister Act” people.  The seed was planted to launch a Public Speaking coaching business as I wrapped up my last year at UCSD. 

After grad school, I found my home in repertory acting companies in New York and all over the US performing Shakespeare and Musical Theater.  While pursuing my acting career I simultaneously started building Fearless Communicators.  In February of 2015 I returned home to New York City to focus all of my creativity and energy on Fearless Communicators.  As a Public Speaking Coach, I work at the intersection of voice, body, and mind.  It is in this zone that clients create sounds they never thought possible.  I work with people and organizations committed to playing and speaking big.
