As a young man, I was inspired by the remarkable people I met in Miami’s “secret floating village.” The sailboat anchorage a quarter-mile off-shore from Miami City Hall attracted world travelers, squatters, dreamers, and bums. All had remarkable stories to tell.

By the time I graduated college, I was living aboard my own tiny sailboat. Soon after graduation, I set sail for the Bahamas with a locker full of food and dreams … and $40 in my pocket.

My voyages took me up and down the Bahamas, up the east coast of the US to Chesapeake Bay, and across the Atlantic to Gibraltar. I ran aground, dealt with mechanical breakdowns, got seasick more than once, slept in a volcano, survived powerful storms, and returned to the land of clocks and calendars with what I’d gone in search of—stories of my own.

Today, as a speaker, trainer, and coach, I help remarkable people tell remarkable stories—through writing, speaking, graphic design, video, technology, and music. If you want to say it, share it, or sell it, bring me your story; I’ll help you tell it.
