I love speaking to groups, because I love people. Meeting others and sharing my story is one of the greatest privileges of this job. I try to bring the same enthusiasm to every meeting or event that I bring to “The Daytripper.” My aim is to create contagious energy and have everyone walk away having learned something and been inspired to take the next step…whatever that may be.
I’ve spoken on a number of topics including – outdoor recreation, nature stewardship, day trip ideas, Texas history, Texas wine, story telling, television production, and entrepreneurship. I’m happy to adjust my message to meet the needs of your group.

Many speakers keep their rates secret and adjust up or down based on the particulars of the event. I prefer a much more open policy to let event organizers know up front whether or not I’m a good fit for their event and budget.
- 1-1.5 hour KEYNOTE is $2,000 plus expenses (I’m happy to include an smaller 1-hour session for a reduced fee of $500)
- 1-1.5 hour PRESENTATION, WORKSHOP, or BREAKOUT SESSION is $1,200 plus expenses.
- EVENT APPEARANCE/EMCEE is $2000 plus expenses.
I consider “expenses” to include: (1) mileage or flight, (2) meals en route, and (3) lodging if the event is more than 120 miles from Georgetown, TX or you need me to present early or late in the day.
I also offer discounts to “nonprofits” and “locals” (within 20 miles of Georgetown). Please email for details.
Thank you for your interest, and I look forward to attending your event.
