I love attending conferences and fundraisers. It’s a great opportunity to meet other first responders and hear about the connection they have to my artwork. I always have a display of my original artwork and offer smaller hand signed prints.

I usually speak at these events and my topic is always mental health, PTSD and post-traumatic growth. I share my personal battle with mental health and how it almost destroyed my life. More importantly, as a peer, I share my experience with post traumatic growth and recovery.

By far the best part of attending these events is meeting one on one with other first responders. After speaking with thousands of you I’ve learned we’re all so similar. We all have similar personalities, stories and experiences, we truly are not alone. That’s why I think these conferences are so important, it fosters a real connection within our community.

If you would like me to attend or speak at your event send me a message using the 'contact me' link above. I hope you're able to attend one of these upcoming events, if so drop by my table and say hi.



"He was amazing! His work is truly inspirational".

" I've seen you speak several times now and learn something every time. You were an inspiration as an instructor for EMT and even more so now. You are always so humble when you speak and your message is powerful. Keep up the great work "humble messenger".

"I was there and went to your session. Awesome work".

"It was a pleasure meeting Daniel at our recent Ontario Communicators Conference hosted by us - Greater Sudbury Police. Daniel spoke eloquently and candidly about turning his personal struggles into his inspiration for his wonderful artwork. Thank you Daniel for participating in our conference and for your gracious donations".
