Personal Overview

Words have the power to heal, change, and determine our destiny.  As an instructor in communications, I hope to coach people how to find the treasures within them so they can connect with purpose and intent in personal, academic and business settings.

Passionate about communications, art, photography, the oceans, science, sailing, surfing, and teaching.
