Venues he has spoken at include hundreds of high school assemblies and parish events, colleges (including Annapolis, Penn State and the US Air Force Academy) and both national and international events including the Steubenville Youth Conferences, National Catholic Youth Convention, the Knock, Ireland Youth Festival, and FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students) National Conferences.
