Welcome to my Speaking page! I’ve spoken across the country at all sorts of events, from mega conferences to small groups, parish retreats to diocesan celebrations, and I’d love to speak at yours.
I typically speak on topics relating to the New Evangelization, the new media, Catholic social teaching, and Catholic spirituality. However, I’ll customize my presentation to meet your group’s needs. My goal is to create your ideal outcome and knock the ball out of the park.
Check out what others have said over at my Endorsements page, then email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get the ball rolling.
