So here is the story: I spent 18 years playing bass in the Boston Pops.
I often appear as a guest speaker, sharing my favorite amusing stories of my musician days:
I have a talent for telling stories and making people laugh. I am also just very curious about why the world works the way it does, and why people behave the way they do. That led to my next three books, where I try to make sense of all the odd and contradictory phenomena I observe. In my many adventures as a bass player, TV score reader, author, playwright, and video producer, I constantly ran into situations and results that the usual books on success and management simply do not acknowledge or address. For example, "Principles of Applied Stupidity" explains why Arthur Fiedler, a man with virtually no talent, was the greatest conductor in history. It also considers why C Students make the best MBA candidates. My latest book, "Time Light Love," looks at the physics of emotional energy. Again, it's all about trying to decipher the genetic code of why people do the many odd things they do:
I am always eager to share my puzzlements with anyone who will listen, and I endlessly do so on my blog and on any podcast or radio/TV show that will have me.
So, if you'd like me to come and entertain the crowd with some funny stories, or maybe set the record straight on how a truly great conductor elicits top performances, or hire me to manage an unusual project, here I am.
Please feel free to call me at 781-330-8143, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you!
