As a speaker and teacher, I have reached thousands of artists, photographers, historians, educators, and environmentalists.
Museums, galleries, conferences, universities, book stores, camera/photography clubs, and high schools have booked me to present talks, lectures, and panel discussions.
I have also been engaged to serve as a keynote speaker at dinner events; a motivational/inspirational speaker for Big Brothers Big Sisters, religious institutions, and other community groups; a judge at photography and art contests; and many other public events.
When not physically in front of an audience, I can also be heard behind the mic on radio, podcasts, and other media.
If you are interested in having me at your event, contact my Studio Manager, Linda Ruder, with your details.
In the meantime, check out my speaking engagements below.

Museum Talk - New Picture Book on Washington's Headquarters
I'll be joined by Jude M. Pfister, the Chief of Cultural Resources, to discuss the release of the park's picture book featuring my photographs of George Washington's headquarters (the Ford Mansion).
Jude will explain the history behind the rooms depicted in my photographs and how my images offer viewers a different experience of the mansion. I'll explain the process and vision behind the creation of the images as well as how the collection fits within my oeuvre. Check out this video for a preview:
"Perfect for a non-artist like myself. Knowledgeable and personable – I would recommend...to anyone."
