Growing up in Brooklyn, New York, I was an insecure, totally shy boy who never asked questions in school for fear he would be ridiculed by teachers and peers. Stood alone in the school yard watching everyone have fun. In a world full of people, I  felt isolated and alone. It was the same at home too. Then it all changed. I saw Elvis Presley on T.V. and knew at that moment what my life, passion and destiny would be. To be a star. So I convinced my parents to buy me a guitar, took lessons, taught myself to sing, by imitating my favorite artists.  Joined a band, and eventually with lots of practice and dedication, overcame my  fear of public performance.

Since then, I  have been on many stages. 

The common denominators of my diversified personal and business experience are  sales, management, marketing, people, education, communication, performance coaching and music.  These skill sets contribute to my understanding of what motivates people to watch, listen, learn, create,  service, buy and sell. Fifty plus years of experience and over 600,000 Pitches and presentations later, I am a Vocal, presentation performance coach.

I’m also a serial entrepreneur in ground breaking startups. A former recording artist. In the early nineties I left the corporate sales world and opened what would become the first Karaoke sing a – long company in New York City. Thus began my journey to help people overcome their fear of public performance. Later as the principal of Cummings Attractions, I was a pioneer in the art of InfoTainment. My  mission “ “To End Boring Meeting Syndrome”. It was here I created the Interactive Voice of God character, The Faux Guest Speaker and  began coaching top executives in crafting speeches and the delivery of dynamic presentations. I now dedicate myself to full time coaching and consultation. for individuals and organizations.
