You were a teacher before? For Reals?
I had so much fun hypnotizing my students that I decided to take my show on the road. My classroom is across the nation now. I call myself a full time travel teacher!
Interestingly – I still hold a valid British Columbia teaching certificate.
What are your future plans?
I want to continue doing what I love: Educating & Entertaining with Hypnosis. I would love to hypnotize at the Apollo Theater in Brooklyn.
I’ve seen your show and it is awesome! Where did you get your humor?
My Dad is probably the funniest individual that I know and he rubbed off on me I guess! My dad makes everyone laugh around him and I hope to do the same through out my life. My Dad is a traditional native pow wow dancer and a First Nations storyteller.
Is Hypnosis a gift you have?
If education is a gift then – yes. I took drama and stage training, hypnosis training, lots of reading and mentorship. My mother always supported my stage presentations whether it was rap music, acting, or the healing arts like hypnosis.
Any messages for the youth?
Do what you love doing and don’t stop till you make it! Exceed expectations! Do what you love and be who you are. I have been creating a new brand of Hypnosis since 2004 and have been breaking down barriers and excelling in ways that I never thought possible. Step out of the box and the norm and you will be rewarded in your journey. Also most importantly – invite positive people into your life and bring people with you where ever you go. Life is all about the journey and creating bonds and close friendships. I also live a drug & alcohol-free lifestyle and hope to inspire other young people to do the same if they choose to.
