I had the pleasure of connecting with the legendary Fred Penner on this video.  It’s a remix of my original “I Stand Up” song which features a strong anti-bullying message.

Welcome to the new Stay Driven website!

Over the last ten years I have visited hundreds of school and had the opportunity to speak in front of hundreds of thousands of youth.

“I enjoyed the presentation and was impressed at the rapt attention of every student in the gym. Your style is professional yet personal and the message very clear. The advice you give is  important for preadolescents whose attitudes and values are just being formed.”

Gayle Stucke, Director of Education, Lambton Kent District School Board

“You did a fantastic job with the youth. Words cannot express how touched we were by your performance and what an awesome job you did connecting the concept of the race with their lives. In working with this group of youth over the last year, I have NEVER seen them all so engaged and excited about something. You are, in fact, still the talk of the town with these kids. They can’t get enough of you and just keep sharing stories.”

“I am a teacher with the Peel board and my students had the opportunity to see your show on Friday.  I teach a behaviour class and have one student who faces a unique set of challenges .  Sometimes he is difficult to motivate.   He was moved by your performance and is suddenly inspired in a way I have not seen in him before.   He is very musical and because of your show, he is enthusiastic about expressing himself through writing music and songs.  I know he spoke to you after the show and he has not stopped talking about it since.  I just wanted to write to you to thank you for being such an inspiration to students  and for making a difference.”
