Portfolio

I have always been a public speaker ever since I was a young child where I would give sermons in the church I attended growing up. My first major speech was when I was in Grade 5 where I was nominated for a personal achievement award in Edmonton in front of an audience of 200. I enjoy talking with people on deep issues!

Thank you for checking out my previous and upcoming engagements.
