My Story

I have spent the past 25 years in a variety of leadership and management roles, including proudly serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. Most of this experience has been in municipal parks and recreation management, and non-profit leadership. Throughout my career, I have learned how to create an energetic and positive work environment, and now I want to pass this on to you!

Armed with my leadership experience, tuned up with a wry, self-deprecating, and humorous take on life, and a Master's Degree in Organizational Psychology, I have created Laughtership - an entirely new approach to professional happiness and satisfaction.


My Passion

"Spreading Mirth on Earth"
is my mission (and passion) in life!


What is Mirth?
It is simply the expression of happiness through laughter, so my mission is simplicity itself - help people re-learn how to laugh! By re-engaging our child-like sense of play, we unlock a powerful way to thrive in life through unconditional laughter!

Laughtership is the combination of Laughter & Leadership, which I have combined into a powerful new way to create happiness, build teams, and reduce stress in the workplace.

Who is Mr. Mirth?
The delightful gentleman you see next to this text, and throughout the Laughtership LLC website, is Mr. Mirth, Laughtership LLC's finest employee.
He embodies the spirit of Laughtership, and brings laughter to whomever he meets.

My Commitment

I am committed to authentic leadership development and training through positive psychology. This means that no matter what Laughtership service you choose, you will be engaged in a positive, transformative, and ultimately rewarding experience!
