Media and Speaking Engagement Information:
Tadd is available to media, corporate, or private groups to discuss the story behind the American Craftsman Project — from its beginnings documenting the American workers’ experience to the book itself, Portraits of the American Craftsman. He loves to talk about his passion for the project and how it can inspire others to pursue their own version of the American dream.

Since the book’s release, Tadd has been interviewed on everything from morning TV talk shows (“The Broadcast” in Dallas) to radio shows (the popular local PBS radio show “Think”) to local newscasts (Channel 5 in Boston). Also, Tadd participated in a lecture and discussion at the North Bennet Street School in Boston, which is featured in the book and which graduates wonderful American craftsmen every year.
