A Bit About Me
In the last 9 years I have spoken to and trained Fortune 500 Companies from Microsoft to Coca-Cola and McDonald’s. On a regular basis I speak and lecture at universities and colleges from Vanderbilt University, Belmont University, Lipscomb University, The University of Tennessee, to the Owen Graduate School of Business.
I have appeared on ABC, FOX and The Oxygen Channel. As well, I have been on numerous syndicated and local radio shows, and the same goes for podcasts.
I am the lead Body Language and Interrogation trainer at iCenter, where I train Law Enforcement, Military, Private Investigators, Lawyers, and Mediators.
At the Nashville Entrepreneur Center I was Entrepreneur In Residence and Mentor from 2011-2017. I taught Body Language and Investor Pitching to Entrepreneurs and Startups from Nashville to Silicon Valley and every Entrepreneur stop in between. Using my training method “How To Create An Investable Pitch” combined with my skill set of Body Language and Persuasion Techniques, I’ve helped Entrepreneurs raise over $480M to date.
I devote the majority of my time in my favorite environments which include speaking, consulting, and training. In terms of my platform, I have a blog where my focus is Body Language and Nonverbal Communication Skills.
With my business partner and fellow Interrogator, Trainer and Body Language Expert, Greg Hartley we developed and released what has become the #1 online Body Language Micro-Learning Course. (BodyLanguageTactics.com)
I’m happily married to my wife, Ambre and we live in Nashville, Tennessee with our dogs Albert and Hattie. In my free time I enjoy researching and spending time with my family and friends.
