I am a sought after Keynote Speaker and Master of Ceremonies in addition to serving in the Florida Legislature as a State Senator.. I realized many years ago that a positive impact on others would allow them the freedom to thrive and that is why people who I have mentored have become leaders in their fields as well as elected officials. I help break through the boundaries that are limiting your dream and your team and get them ready to shape the future. Let me help you move from the world of yesterday's regrets to the world of tomorrow's victories.

What is it that is holding you in the present and keeping you from accessing your brightest future? This presentation is built on years working with youth, community leaders and citizens who are trying to stay ahead of the next wave. I will help you and your team figure out how to shape what is coming in the future.
I developed this interactive presentation while working with NGOs in South America. While there were plenty of interactions between different teams, the connections between them were never utilized efficiently. We worked to establish how to form inter- and intra-network connections that allow for better workflow and results with longer term stability.
As a successful professional planning professional I understand that it is necessary to keep others who are a part of the professional societies informed about the issues that impact our professions. I have presented to conferences such as the Florida Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, The Florida Planning & Zoning Association, The Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association and other conferences related to land use and zoning.
Elected office is a public trust and it my aim to keep you informed
