I give talks on a variety of subjects, including my Year of Fearless Love (and how it completely changed the trajectory of my life); Self-Love (why we struggle to love ourselves and how to make it a daily practice); and Creativity (living a creative life and trusting the creative process). I approach my topics with honesty, humor, and a genuine desire to engage the audience in a conversation that leaves us all better off. The world needs more conversation.
