How I can help you

I’ve always been passionate about promoting corporate clients to a very important external constituency – members of the press. I can help businesses on how to create a great, positive image when being interviewed by journalists, reporters and broadcast correspondents. I’ve spent more than 20 years in public relations – working for a publicly-traded corporation, top New York agencies representing clients ranging from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies and as a solo consultant, most notably for the prestigious global charity Save the Children. My outstanding track record of securing top-tier placements in print/online/broadcast media were achieved by establishing strong, credible relationships with local, national and international news outlets. Each and every one was instrumental in attracting new customers, investors, employees and vendors/suppliers for my clients. My top-tier media placements include the New York Times, BusinessWeek, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Financial Times, USA TODAY, Red Herring, Christian Science Monitor, ABCNews.com, Orlando Sentinel, San Jose Mercury News, FOX News Channel, Bloomberg Television, CNBC’s “Mad Money with Jim Cramer” and the British Broadcasting Company (BBC). With Weber Shandwick Worldwide, a top global public relations agency headquartered in New York City, I managed media relations and product launches for the agency’s Dun & Bradstreet U.S. account and specialized in writing speeches for D&B’s executives. While at Mecklermedia Corporation, I served as Investor Relations Liaison for the company before their merger with Penton Media. I’ve earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Alfred University. I currently live in Stamford, CT where my hobbies include reading, hiking and travel.

Ask SCORE

          A friend and I are considering becoming partners in purchasing an existing, somewhat successful hobby shop. I’ve known him a long time, but we’ve never been in business together. What is your opinion of partnerships?  

          The partnership has been the foundation for millions of successful small businesses. Unfortunately, it has also been the source for innumerable disputes, arguments, irreparable relationships and lawsuits, all of which exacted economic and personal costs on the people involved.
