Share your passion
As artists, we tend to be solitary creatures so being around more than a paintbrush can be unsettling and overwhelming. It doesn't have to be. I am an extreme introvert with social anxiety who has managed to learn how to speak in front of hundreds of people. I have also been teaching others to speak in public for the last ten years but mostly in a corporate environment.
What I can do for you
In my 13 years as a teacher and trainer I am skilled at preparing bespoke programs for my students. Together we will find a communication style that is appropriate for your personality and your goal/s.
We will prepare scripts that present the best version of yourself that won't make you sound like a robot. We will use our cameras to discuss body language, like what to do with those pesky hands! We will discuss how to deal with any anxiety with humor and compassion.
If you are a non-native speaker of English, I can help you with pronunciation, intonation, and general language.

I had quite a bit of fear of speaking in front of other growing up but I was given quite a few speaking opportunities early on. In my early 20s, I gave public health and safe-sex talks to residents in university housing around the University of Texas at Austin and Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. I also provided one-off lectures to different university courses, like Sociology and Psychology courses, about public health and sexuality..
I provided workshops to university professors at Austin Community College on the services available to them through the IT Department as well as additional workshops on IT tools. During this time, I also provided coaching to students, including blind students, in public speaking. I was also approached by the occasional professor who hoped to communicate their passion more effectively
For the last 8 years, I have been working with professionals in a variety of industries here in Barcelona, Spain. This has been a particular challenge for my students as they are working in English which is not their mother-tongue.I have prepared CEOs and top executives for international industry conferences and negotiations.I have helped employees present the best version of themselves in important presentations, networking events and in interviews.I have worked with university professors at the top schools in Barcelona to support their careers.
