You were spectacular! I have received so many enthusiastic responses from people in the audience in the days afterwards. They just loved your natural charm, your articulate British sense of humor, and how you actually pulled it off and lived to tell the story! Like I said, you made them come alive that evening at ExplorOcean. You made a lot of new friends in Newport Beach!
