  • About me

    I help people to tell stories about the most meaningful moments in their lives and to live more adventurously and authentically. Together, we can revisit and recreate the peaks and valleys of your journey, so that you can share about them publicly, in ways that will move and motivate others.

    For over ten years, I have been the Founder and Owner of one of the world's most acclaimed, long-standing, and ever more popular storytelling and podcast platforms, RISK! The RISK! podcast has been lauded by The New York Times, Slate, and New York Magazine for its life-changing personal stories and gets over one million downloads each month. The RISK! live show has toured to sold-out audiences in over 45 cities and counting, in the U.S. and abroad.

    Through the true storytelling school that I founded, The Story Studio, I've trained hundreds of people in the art of communicating about their lives, careers and work projects in unforgettable ways that produce results. I created a proven method for applying easy-to-learn, practical techniques for crafting dynamic and compelling narratives. Some of our past clients at The Story Studio include Google, Pfizer, Citibank, American Express, and Ernst & Young.

    I have spent many years studying the crafts of hypnosis, meditation, and journaling -- techniques that I often incorporate in my coaching. I have also spent ten years teaching and/or attending workshops in the BDSM/kink community and have mentored many newcomers in their personal journeys in that realm.

    As an actor, I have appeared on The State on MTV, Reno 911! on Comedy Central, High Maintenance and Flight of the Conchords on HBO, and Comedy Bang Bang on IFC. In 2007-2008, I served as the Artistic Director of The Peoples Improv Theater in New York City and have directed many theater productions since graduating from the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU.
