ARE YOUR PEOPLE FEELING LIKE
Greatness is unattainable?
Possibilities are limited?
Hope is lost?
CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE
WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE IF
THEY BELIEVED THAT
THEN YOU NEED TO MEET
HELLO! I'M DEVIN.
I am a peak performance keynote speaker and award-winning comedian and magician. I'm also happily married with 6 beautiful daughters. You could say I enjoy challenges. So much so that I accepted an invitation back in 2014 to audition in front of the celebrity judges on the world's biggest talent show:
AMERICA'S GOT TALENT.
Long story short...the judges did not put me through. I was devastated. I felt it was a fine performance, but for some reason I didn't "wow" the judges that day. It messed with my head and I wanted to quit magic altogether. That was one possibility. Thankfully, my "Possibility Mindset" kicked in. The Possibility Mindset never stops asking the question:
"WHAT ELSE IS POSSIBLE?"
That's when I discovered I was meant for a different purpose than becoming a Vegas headliner. My situation opened up the possibility for me to share with others how to not only survive, but thrive in the midst of a great challenge. Everyone has experienced disappointment, failure and regrets, and now I use my magic and other skills as metaphors for overcoming great obstacles.
Today, my focus is delivering engaging, entertaining, interactive and heartfelt keynotes (live and virtual) that get people fired up to pursue greater possibilities and achieve more than they could ever imagine. Now more than ever, I want to lift people's spirits, encourage them to harness their untapped potential, and inspire them to live like they believe that...
SOMETHING GREATER IS ALWAYS POSSIBLE.
ACHIEVING PEAK PERFORMANCE
VIRTUAL MENTALISM SHOW

KEYS TO LEVELING UP GREATNESS
MAINTAIN A POSSIBILITY MINDSET
The possibility mindset asks the question: “What else is possible?” And never stops asking. When life, or people, tell you, “That’s not possible,” you must make the choice to reject those perceived limits for yourself and continue to dream.
ADOPT THE A.G.T. PERSPECTIVE
A.G.T. stands for Acceptance, Grace, and Thankfulness. Acceptance means you stop wishing you could change the past. Grace means you forgive yourself and others for mistakes. Thankfulness means you look for the good in any challenge, because challenging circumstances are what grow us.
START UGLY. START SMALL. PICK UP THE BALL.
Achieving peak performance is a daily, on-going process. Starting ugly means embracing imperfection when starting or re-starting a process. Starting small means taking baby steps toward your big goal. Picking up the ball means making risk and failure fixtures in your daily process and never, ever quitting, despite how hard things get.
“Devin’s presentation was spot-on for our audience. The crowd resonated with his examples for achieving more in high-performing teams, taking risks, and striving towards innovation. Devin integrated his message with physical comedy, sleight of hand and mentalism. It was truly amazing! Devin is an engaging and charismatic speaker who I highly recommend!”

Why should you hire this motivational speaker?
You don’t just want a motivational speaker, you want a funny motivational speaker! You want your conference to open with not only an informative keynote speaker but one who can engage the audience with laughter and audience interaction. Humor is memorable and is what makes the message stick. Devin is a CSP, or Certified Speaking Professional, which means he is a keynote speaker who has officially been verified by the National Speakers Association for his longevity, income, and clients as a credible motivational speaker.
What makes this funny motivational speaker funny?
Where do we start? Devin’s observational humor covers everything from dieting to technology to weird names for babies, but there is a rhyme and reason for his comedy. Devin’s humorous stories serve as examples for laughing through life’s serious complications. He has been described as a corporate comedian who uses stand up comedy and magic to help people identify their problems, laugh in light of their struggles, and take actionable steps toward an improved performance.
Corporate Comedian: speaker or entertainer?
Is a corporate comedian a speaker or entertainer? With Devin, it’s one, the other or both. He is a corporate keynote speaker in terms of delivering a message with impact, but his messages are stinkin’ entertaining! So entertaining, in fact, he often gets booked for entertainment alone. When speaking, Devin’s extra talents don’t distract, they impact. Devin’s mad skills support his points and engage people so they understand and retain the message. So…use Devin as an entertaining keynote speaker, an entertainer only, or save money on hiring two people and have him fill both roles.
