I love speaking to groups and sharing my story along with the story of Texas.  I bring the same enthusiasm to every event that I bring to “The Daytripper.”  My aim is to create contagious energy and to have every attendant walk away inspired and excited about Texas, daytripping, and finding their own passion in life.  Here are some comments I’ve received.

“You helped us focus our theme of “Telling our Stories” in a way no one else could have.”  – Barbara Brannon, PhD, Executive Director, Texas Plains Trail Region

“Absolutely fantastic!!! He was the best choice for a keynote.” – Conference Attendee

TOPICS:  I’ve spoken on a number of topics including – my personal story, Texas travel, outdoor recreation and stewardship, day trip ideas, Texas history, food, film making, storytelling, entrepreneurship, marketing, and faith.  I always adjust my message to meet the specific needs of any group and will do the same for you!
