Available Programming


APPEARANCES | TESTIMONIALS | FEES | AVAILABLE PROGRAMS | CALENDAR


These are my developed workshops, classes and talks. All can be modified to suit your needs or curriculum. I am also happy to design a workshop, speech, or program to facilitate your needs. I’m willing to create programs which slot into current classroom curriculum, and to modify any program for any age group. I am open to programming in both small and large groups.

For most programming, I only require a laptop projector. Programs marked with * have additional requirements.
