One-Line Bio

College professor, designer, musician, best-selling author.


I am the author of Presentation Zen and other best-selling books related to presentation and presentation design. These books are available in about 20 languages around the world. I'm from the North Oregon Coast (USA) originally, though I have spent nearly all my adult life in Japan. I travel around the world to give presentations, keynotes, and workshops, yet Japan is my home. The TEDxTokyo website has a short bio page on me with links here. Please find more information on my background at my website here. Thanks very much for your interest.

The SAY 100
SAY Media out of New York City said in 2011 that I am one of the
"100 most-influential people on the Internet.". Go figure.
