Tell me a fact and I’ll learn. Tell me a truth and I’ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever. - Indian Proverb
As a storyteller, I am driven by a desire to communicate profound and inspiring messages, to find great stories and tell them well - in all forms and formats. I am also passionate about impacting lives for good. I've dedicated my life to communicating through compelling content, in film, video, books and through speaking, through the entities below.
Through Eterne Films we have developed a company that tells stories that inspire and give hope. The company's current project, ONE HEART is based on a true story surrounding a Texas high school football game between a private school power and a team from a maximum security juvenile facility - two groups from diverse backgrounds whose paths cross to create life-changing hope and inspiration for both teams. Two Teams. Two Cultures. One Heart.
SER Media is our television production group. We have produced programming for ESPN, Fox Sports, and a number of other outlets. I was the story producer for All or Nothing: The Michigan Wolverines, an 8-part series produced for Amazon. This is the first of its kind – a series that takes viewers inside the lives of student-athletes in one of the most prominent football programs in America throughout an entire season.
We produce the annual Super Bowl Breakfast at the site of Super Bowl each year. The highlight of this sanctioned Super Bowl event is the presentation of the prestigious Bart Starr Award, presented to the NFL player voted on by his peers as the NFL's greatest example of character and leadership.
NON PROFIT WORK
Heart of a Champion is a 20-year-old nonprofit with a focus on impacting youth. Through a character development program, we have reached some 700,000 students in public schools and after school programs. The One Heart Project is our signature initiative. One Heart is a companion to the ONE HEART movie, and provides a comprehensive, holistic solution for kids in the juvenile justice system. This collaborative effort combines the efforts of many partners to provide a pathway to a second chance for these forgotten youth. Currently, we are running this initiative in Texas, Kansas, Missouri, Indiana and Utah.
I am privileged to speak at conferences, universities, corporations, churches, civic groups and other settings, to educate, inform and inspire. Whether the message is on juvenile justice, film/television, writing, education or faith and values, I love challenging and motivating audiences with real-life stories and timeless principles that translate into activation. If you would like to schedule me to speak, please contact me here.
