Dennis is an ordinary man with an extraordinary story.

11 years apart, Dennis suffered the loss of both his brothers to suicide, sending him into a spiral of depression and addiction.

With supreme courage and self-motivation, Dennis embarked on a journey of therapy and sobriety. He started volunteering at a crisis hotline, and the more his old wounds began to heal, the more strongly he felt about transforming his personal story of grief into a life mission to help others.

Today, Dennis is a sought-after speaker, educator, and author, creating an environment where people feel comfortable discussing “uncomfortable” subjects such as mental health and suicide prevention. Trained in QPR, ASIST, SafeTalk, Talk Saves Lives, and SoulShop, he stays current with mental health professional development. With his inspirational story, charisma, and sensitivity, Dennis captivates audiences across the country with his message of hope, resilience, and stigma reduction.
