Influences & Inspiration
I am a good friend of Dan Thurmon 2011 National Speaking Association Hall of Fame inductee and have always found Dan as a great influence. My own comedy sword-fighting act Hack and Slash has performed over four thousand live shows in sixteen countries (including Iraq and Afghanistan on six USO tours) and those experience have proven to be most influential in my life.
