“Push The Envelope” featuring Wayne Applebaum

Theme: “Push the Envelope”
Storyteller: Wayne Applebaum

The audience hardly believed Wayne Applebaum to be an “evil stepfather” to a young boy who grew up to call him his “other dad.” With his hard Bronx accent and deadpan delivery, Wayne brought the house to tears and laughter with his life changing experience alongside a child battling leukemia.

Wayne Applebaum is a man that gets things done. And this month, he’ll return to the Oral Fixation for “In the Doghouse” to talk about the time he and his wife moved into a new house, had a baby, adopted a dog, commuted back and forth to his job in Sweden and hosted a Thanksgiving party all in the same month.

Wayne Applebaum spends his waking hours at Avalon Consulting, LLC. He lives in Plano with his wife, Beth, two cats and two dogs. They have two adult children. He loves the Dallas Arts District, TITAS, the DTC, the DMA, Whole Foods and is hopelessly addicted to binge-watching West Wing.
