Telling stories on the page and on the stage
MY NYC GRANDSLAM STORY ABOUT MY WIFE, MY CHILDREN, MY LAST NAME, AND JUDAISM. PERFORMED AT THE MUSIC HALL OF WILLIAMSBURG IN APRIL OF 2016.
SPEAK UP, THE STORYTELLING ORGANIZATION THAT I CO-FOUNDED AND NOW SERVE AS ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, WAS FEATURED IN HARTFORD MAGAZINE THIS MONTH.
I WAS ALSO FEATURED PERSONALLY AS A "PLAYER," WHICH IS MOST ASSUREDLY THE FIRST AND LAST TIME THAT TITLE WILL BE APPLIED TO ME. READ BOTH PIECES HERE:
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.
