About Patti

Visual Thinker + Change Activator

98% of people tell me, “My drawing skills suck!” Guess what? It doesn’t matter! When you draw a picture of your future, your brain fires up powerful neurons that help you brainstorm better, remember longer, and achieve your goals faster. You don’t need to know how to draw to use a picture to make change, but if you need a pretty picture, we’ll create one together. I guarantee that picture will change everything!

My Story

A series of events in my life convinced me of the power of imagination and inner visualization. Many years ago, I went to New York City to take acting classes. Like many artists, I would sometimes do street theatre to make a little spare change. One day, I was sharing my spoils with a friend when he asked me if I would ever perform on Broadway, “Me?” I replied with a laugh, “I’m a performance artist. I would only perform Off-Broadway.” ​

Later, his question haunted me and I began to wonder what it would feel like to perform on Broadway. I let myself fantasize about walking through the stage door into the dressing room that had my name on the door. I imagined myself getting ready and waiting behind the thick velvet curtain for the house lights to dim.

​ I told myself to snap out of it, but the lingering sensations of my Broadway fantasy stuck with me when I returned home to Seattle where my career as a performance artist had sunk to an all-time low. Through a sequence of amazing events, within the year that dream came to be my new reality – a successful performer doing what I loved. Since that day I have been working with the power of inner and outer visuals to help individuals, teams and organizations around the world focus to achieve their dreams.

TEDx Draw Your Future

Public speaking has become an extension of my performance art and I have spoke on the TEDx stage 4 times as a keynote speaker.

I shared my signature system, Draw Your Future on the TEDx Stage for the first time in 2012 and then 4 years later it went viral on a bootleg youtube channel and now over 5 million people in total have watched Draw Your Future.
