MEMOIRS OF AN IMAGINARY FRIEND HAS BEEN NOMINATED FOR A NUTMEG AWARD. AFTER 18 YEARS OF RECOMMENDING NUGMEG BOOKS TO STUDENTS, MINE IS ON THE LIST. THRILLING BEYOND DESCRIPTION.
THE LATEST EPISODE OF BOY VS. GIRL, OUR PODCAST ABOUT GENDER AND GENDER STEREOTYPES.
ON THIS WEEK'S EPISODE, RACHEL AND I TALK WITH OUR RESPECTIVE SPOUSES. MEET THE FAMED ELYSHA AND DAVID.
Speak Up is a Hartford-based storytelling organization founded and produced by me and my wife, Elysha Dicks. We produce storytelling shows in Hartford at Real Art Ways and throughout the region at a number of partnered venues. We also teach storytelling to people from all walks of life.
I deliver keynote addresses, commencement speeches, and inspirational talks. I conduct author visits to schools and universities and host storytelling events. I tell personal stories. I speak on the topics of education, writing, storytelling, personal productivity, and achieving one's goals.
I help people set and achieve goals by working closely with them to design action plans, develop strategies to boost productivity and efficiency, and change habits detrimental to their success, all in the pursuit of helping people realize their dreams.
