Training Artists and Closet Creatives in the 21st century

My actioned-oriented labs aim to abolish self-destructive habits while inspiring a fun-first “big picture” outlook towards modern promotional pursuits. For brave souls participating in the creative economy, I indulge in a tough love approach, while wielding a relentless sense of humor, to shake up static modes of outreach.

As both an irreverent artist and guy who graduated magna cum laude from Baruch College with a BA in digital communications, I concoct daring and unconventional promotional methods that actually work. Places that have hired me to rant passionately include NYU Tisch, Dance NYCCUNY Dance Initiative, NJCU Center for the ArtsNoel Pointer Foundation, Kupferberg Center for the Arts, The Actors Fund, and more.

I've also been told my presentations are a hell of a lot of fun. Let me prove it to you. Email to learn more about setting up a presentation or training for your team, students, audience, etc.


They endured an onslaught of public relations jargon and philosophical ranting, and looked good doing it. . Thanks to...
