Hi. I'm Esteban.

I'm a host, writer, and speaker focused on telling stories that matter. I'm the creator and host of shows like "Nothing Is Boring," a love letter to curiosity on SoulPancake and "Third Culture Conversations," a show about identity and belonging on SoulPancake as well. I recently hosted 'Hyundai Highways," a travel show about sustainability. 


I speak, both silly and serious, at middle schools, high schools, colleges, comedy clubs, and conferences. I taught creativity at the college level. I co-wrote a book on creativity. I ran a school in the off-the-grid jungle. I was COO of an entertainment tech company focused on diversity in Hollywood. I was on a TV show that aired on VICELAND and A&E. I started a few businesses.  I'm still figuring things out.

Things I'm obsessed with:


I speak at schools, colleges, conferences, and corporate events. You can find more at Kirkland Productions


For the past few years, I've also worked closely with CharacterStrong speaking about kindness and I love it. 



I've been featured in NPR about "soft skills" and Huffington Post about creativity and lots of local press for things as diverse as being a stand-up comedian and being a fan of Pluto the planet. 



I created "Nothing Is Boring" and "Third Culture Conversations" and hosted "Hyundai Highways"


I've also starred in a TV show and a web-series, made videos for companies, non-profits, political organizations and for fun. It's been a blast.  



I co-wrote a movie you can read about here.


I've written some blogs for Medium that mean a lot to me. Here's one of the more popular ones. 

I also co-wrote a book on creativity. You can find it here.
