"How I Made It In Hollywood" is my keynote speech that guides you through my journey and the steps I took to achieve my success. I breakdown the skills you need to break in and succeed. Talk is followed by a Q&A session.
Whether it's speaking in front of a group of twenty or 14,000, the message is still the same. Just give me a time to hit and I'll be ready to help launch your graduating class into their careers with a truncated version of my keynote speech.

Twenty years after earning my certificate in Television Production from my alma mater, Mt. San Antonio College, honored me as their alumnus of the year. They produced a package about my story and I spoke in front of their graduating class at the Toyota Arena in Ontario, California where there were over 14,000 people in attendance.
Los Angeles City College was kind enough to allow me to come and give my keynote speech to their TV & Film Students about "How I Made It In Hollywood". Here is the footage from the visit which was shot by Professor Jennifer Vaughn's class. I've also spoken at Cal State Northridge, Columbia College Hollywood and Mt. San Antonio Community College.
Since the pandemic began I've been able to speak to a handful of organizations virtually including colleges, high schools, organizations and special events.
