Keynote Speaker of the Da Vinci Approach

"At age 5, 98% of us are creative geniuses. As adults, only 2% of us are. With the Da Vinci Approach, we can reverse this and rekindle our creative genius."

3 Steps to Relight the Creative Fire

Time and again, the three-step method I've dubbed the "Da Vinci Approach" has proven to be my secret weapon. More than just a strategy, it's a transformative experience that makes us competitive in innovation and problem-solving, allowing us to reach goals and solutions that were once thought not possible. This approach has helped me solve the unsolvable, achieve the unachievable, and dream again.   

Overcoming the Fear of Failure

It's easy to think that only the most polished performances should be staged, only the most flawless events should be held, and only the most complete works of art should be published. But art doesn't work that way, and neither should anything else. Creativity is never perfect, and neither are we. If we wait for perfection, we'll be waiting forever. Embracing the "Almost" frees us from the fear of failure and the shackles of unrealistic expectations. Shoot for the moon, and be content with wherever you land. I learned this valuable lesson at a concert in Dallas, from a young trumpet player named Jordan. 

Master of 17

We've all heard the saying, "Jack of all trades, master of none." While I agree we can't master ALL trades, I disagree with the overall sentiment. If it takes 10,000 hours to become a master at something, we can master 17 skills or trades in our lifetimes and still retire at 72. People often tell you to "stay in your lane." Well, what if your "lane" is a 17-lane freeway? Maybe my lane includes being a pianist, singer, composer, author, speaker, chef, soccer player, comedian, and more. Who says we can't be" I say we should.
