What you'll do

I’ll be taking you through the ups and downs of my career as an Olympic gymnast, as well as what is going on in my life now. We’ll talk about personal struggles, victories, discrimination, unexpected recognition—and, of course, the trials and tribulations of the transitioning period in our lives. All in all, we’re going to have a great time chatting and that’s a scout’s honor. Does it still count if I never actually did Boy Scouts? Doesn’t matter. I can promise you that we’ll have a great experience and that you’ll learn something—maybe even a gymnastics skill or two. So grab some coffee, tea, or a cocktail and let’s have some fun.

Hey there, I’m a three-time Olympic medalist, five-time world medalist, a World Champion on parallel bars, and also a massive goof. I’ve been an actor and a writer since I retired from my gymnastics career. I do stand-up occasionally, I’ve performed improv comedy a number of times, and I was a lead in a short film that did really well in the film festival circuit—as well as other film projects. I’ve done motivational speaking for a number of companies and even more for schools and gyms. Basically, I’ll make sure there is never a dull moment during this virtual Experience.

What a rare opportunity to get into the psyche of such a decorated Olympian! He poured his heart and soul into the stories, he told with humility and transparency. This was definitely a once in a lifetime experience for me. Thank you Danell!

Danell's experience was brilliant, inspiring and really funny! I'd recommend it to anyone. He was vulnerable and explained what was going on behind the scenes behind the medals and achievements.
