Mentors, let’s help our Mentees become “Children of Possibility”.

In 2008, Hugh started as a genuine cry for help from an ordinary dude who wanted to be an extraordinary dad. Dude to Dad has grown to include 85,000 new fathers, an Amazon Parenting #1 Bestseller (“Dude to Dad: The First Nine Months”), and two additional books currently in development.

Hugh is also founder of OTA, a creative collaborative offering extraordinary experiences and engagements that educate, empower, and serve as catalysts for community-builders and change agents to improve the lives of all people living in South Dakota, North Dakota, and Minnesota. OTA has welcomed over 50 global thought leaders to the region in its first four years.

Hugh lives in the OTA states with his beautiful, intelligent and extremely patient wife, Amy, four year old daughter Emerson, newborn son Finn, and an imaginary friend named Sally.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
