The Fun Version


It’s true, I find most things funny! I spend most of my life filtering at least ten things I could say at any given moment.
I tend to pick the one that will
a) not get me fired or
b) not cause hurt feelings.

So I guess it is safe to say that I am a gentle, harmless comedian. Never boring, I teach delivering my best educational content with a comedic edge. It comes naturally, I make no apologies.

The rest of the time, I read as many nonfiction books as possible pertaining to literacy, marketing, business and social media.

My goal is for learning to be entertaining and pertinent.

Especially if you work with people or live on planet Earth!
