I fell in love with Oscar Wilde in my early twenties — and while I adored his plays, his poetry & his essays, it was his witty comebacks & quips that stole my heart.
Not everyone can be Oscar — believe me, I’ve tried! — and not everyone is gifted with the ability to whip out the perfect turn of phrase on the spot. But we can all learn to be more concise, colorful & memorable communicators.

I’ve corralled some of my best and brightest scripts, tips & communication how-to’s, for your perusal.
Oh, and whatever you’re aching to say? Just say it.
