Jeff is a speaker, writer and facilitator, who for over ten years has delivered keynotes, talks and workshops for tens of thousands of people across North America. He has talked to people of walks of life (from organizations and community spaces, to grade school, high school, college and university students) discussing how society’s unattainable and harmful ideas of masculinity impact people of all genders.  From Rogers Media, Vidyard, Canada Post, to numerous post-secondary spaces, Jeff has created space for people of all genders to explore being ‘the lesson in action’!

Jeff has delivered two TEDx talks on Masculinity and men’s troubled pursuits of identity: Words Speak Louder Than Actions and The Ladder of Manhood. Jeff started Higher Unlearning as an online space to explore how ideas of gender and masculinity impact us in everyday life. Jeff previously worked at the White Ribbon Campaign and with Next Gen Men, has organized dozens of gender/masculinity-related events, founded and curated the first four ‘What Makes a Man’ Conferences and was event director for the first TEDxWomen event in Toronto, Canada. He was named to Racism Free Ontario’s Top 100 Person of Colour list spotlighting anti-racism activists.
