He’s such a great speaker! He is dropping some deep knowledge! Drawing as a metaphor for life!

Inspiring! Badass!

I love how observant and thoughtful he is!

Amazing!! Inspiring and beautiful. Thank you so so much for bringing Danny here!

Mind blown! Can we adopt this guy as our Godfather?*

I enjoy talking to people who are looking for ways to expand their creativity, see the world in fresh ways, or to heal themselves. My presentations are full of stories richly illustrated with hundreds slides and films from my many sketchbooks.

I like to talk about:

  • how to develop creative habits

  • the power of personal storytelling

  • how to beat your inner critic

  • how to face life's challenges creatively

  • tackling obstacles to creativity

  • where ideas come from

... and more.
