I try to bring humor, passion, and local relevance to my speaking engagements—not just a sterile book reading. Let's talk about the Revolution in a way and with a perspective they never taught us in school. Contact


Among my engagements, I served as a member of the 2017–2018 Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau. As a college senior, I was selected to be one of the two student commencement speakers at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
