I am a dynamic, passionate speaker who makes complex topics accessible to any audience.

I use story, passion, and energy to make presentations powerful. 

My clients praise my ability to make complex topics accessible to any audience.

I speak frequently on leadership, international and constitutional law, international security, business and human rights, refugees and migration, and Middle East politics. 

I have lectured nearly 1,500 senior military officers as a Professor at Marine Corps University. I conduct 10-15 additional invited speaking and workshop engagements each year for public, private sector, and academic audiences.

Descriptions of my Corporate Workshops are available here.
