I develop all my own courses and workshops. Contact me if you are looking for a satire workshop, consulting, or detailed instructions on how to fall down in public on a daily basis. Recent workshops have been September 2017 and May 2018 in Washington, D.C. and December 2017 and August 2018 at Catapult in NY. I have upcoming workshops in Chicago, IL and Hartford, CT.
