Comedy

Dion has done stand-up comedy all over New York City and in the Republic of Korea while on tour as a soldier in the Army.

Public Speaking

Dion is an awarding-winning public speaker, winning the District trophy for best speech as a member of the New York City branch of Toastmasters International.

Dion has helped many clients improve and prepare for their public speeches, presentations and acting auditions.
Life Coach

Growing up as the Only Brown Kid In The Trailer park, gave Dion a particularly keen insight into human nature. He has translated this (and his metaphysical studies) into some equally keen character portrayals . However, did you know that Dion was also a Life Coach for 7 years. A very successful one. Which he thinks is funny since the title Life Coach sounds like you're someone who knows how everybody else should run their lives. No...that's not what it means. Life Coaches and Actors do the same thing: hold mirrors up to nature.
