Welcome to The Pageant Playbook! Let's be clear. I am NOT a pageant coach. Just because I have won pageants does not mean I can teach others how to win pageants. But after 10 years in pageantry and 15 years in sports entertainment, my goal is to create a platform introducing you to pageantry's Top Players. Join us to chat about their lessons and tips so you can improve your game as a director or contestant.
