Podcasts and Other Speaking Engagements

Everything I talk about is designed to help empower teens and young adults to live life on their own terms.

I speak in a wide range of settings, everything from podcasts broadcast overseas to virtual conferences. Some of the things I like to talk about include:

  • Tips for living authentically that everyone can use.
  • What popular media gets wrong about Autism and mental health in general and why this is harmful
  • The first steps you can take toward transformation no matter what barriers stand in your way.
