I specialize in delivering quality, discussion based trainings; entertaining, media-rich keynotes; and designing innovative curricula. I focus on topics of gender violence prevention, bystander intervention, consent, redefining masculinity and sexual health.

In my time as a public speaker and educator I’ve had the privilege of working with groups of men and women in a wide variety of settings, including:

  • Colleges and universities across the U.S.
  • All branches of the U.S. Military
  • Rape prevention programs in Nairobi, Kenya
  • Professional conferences
  • Batterer intervention programs
  • Juvenile detention centers
  • Public and private middle and high schools

Whether you've seen me present before or not, please check out the SERVICES I can provide, including; trainings, keynotes, curriculum development and technical assistance. You're also welcome to CONTACT me or view my professional BIO.

Additionally, you can find my published work in SLUT: A Play and Guidebook for Combating Sexism and Sexual Violence, APEX Magazine and my blog HowManly.com. Or watch my videos critiquing advertising, video games and other forms of media on YouTube. If you find any of my videos useful, please let me know and feel free use them in your classrooms and other settings.

Thanks for visiting and I look forward to working with you.

By the end of the workshop, his audience is significantly more engaged, aware, and informed.
