Hi! I’m Joe.

Our schools are experiencing an unprecedented shift.  Student loneliness is at an all-time high, while self worth and belonging are at all-time lows.  And the culprit is a lack of human connection.

One Simple Mission;
Reclaim Human Connection

Over the last 15+ years I’ve spoken in educational settings all over the world with one simple mission… to reclaim human connection.

Whether it’s a Middle School in Minneapolis, a Professional Development workshop in Montana, or an International Conference in Malaysia…people are craving connection.

It’s only when we stop and slow down, separate from our screens, and truly listen to each other’s stories, that we can course correct, and give our youth the best chance to leave their mark on this world.

Let’s talk more today!
