I have returned to New York following a month in London where The Telling Company helped to produce the UK premiere of Stalking The Bogeyman. Many of you attended the off-Broadway premiere in September of 2014 and know first hand the power of this staged performance. Hence, the critical acclaim it received.
In London the praise continued and I am delighted to report that in addition to the rave reviews, Stalking the Bogeyman has been nominated for three Offie Awards.
It has been an honor to work directly with David Holthouse whose story this is.

By doing so he has taken the subject of sexual abuse, … [Continue reading...]

I know that we’re all busy, if not super-busy. We’re buried in our cell phones and in all sorts of things, often very good things. I am too—I understand.
However, we’re really here to transform our species and planet. This Symposium is a good step in this direction. We just have no time to waste any more. It’s all happening so fast plus time has sped up. Glaciers are melting so fast we cannot account for the speed nor the effect. So much damage has been done already, to the planet, to the eco-system, to our water, soil and food, to other species, to each other. The level of economic disparity among everyone, but especially race and gender is so great, we cannot account for this either. It’s time to wake up and upgrade our vision of the future, a future for which we … [Continue reading...]

The New York Times
Five years ago, a college freshman named Ian Burkhart dived into a wave at a beach off the Outer Banks in North Carolina and, in a freakish accident, broke his neck on the sandy floor, permanently losing the feeling in his hands and legs.
On Wednesday, doctors reported that Mr. Burkhart, 24, had regained control over his right hand and fingers, using technology that transmits his thoughts directly to his hand muscles and bypasses his spinal injury. The doctors’ study, published by the journal Nature, is the first account of limb reanimation, as it is known, in a person with quadriplegia.
Doctors implanted a chip in Mr. Burkhart’s brain two years ago. Seated in a lab with the implant connected through a computer to a sleeve on his arm, he was able to learn by … [Continue reading...]

"Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye" is the most important song I've
ever released, because the subject is a matter of life or death.
The fact is, bullied teens often commit suicide.
That's why iconic pop singer Taylor Dayne and
legendary DJ Paul Oakenfold have both joined me
in this special project.
All net proceeds from video views, song streams and downloads of
"Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye" will go to anti-bullying charities.
