the host of

Protecting Courage

I have 3 reasons why I started this podcast and I would like to share them with you today.


  1. I want to inspire and work with people who are defying the odds.

  2. I believe that we must not only learn how to anticipate change but we also must learn how to create it.

  3. I believe that we are all leaders and have the power to change minds, hearts, and cultures through conversation and storytelling.
