I have been working in public relations since 1999 and am a former adjunct professor of media law at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. I am presently an adjunct instructor of public relations, journalism, digital writing, business writing, media law and social media at NYU. I will bring the media to you while developing strategies that take your story to the next level. I offer quality experience and journalistic expertise for a variety of public relations needs. I also have long-term media relationships that are essential in delivering the exposure you need, and because of my wide range of national and international contacts, I can connect you with key press outlets for maximum attention.
I implement sound strategies, focused execution and collaboration with a broad network of affiliates. My background has enabled me to secure numerous interviews with prestigious outlets such as The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Associated Press, Reuters, MarketWatch, BBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNBC, CNN, FOX News, MSNBC, PBS, BET, Al Jazeera, CTV and France24, to name a few. My media outreach has been responsible for a number of New York Times bestsellers.

Manute Bol, tallest player in the MBA
Manute Bol was a Sudanese-born American basketball player and political activist. Listed at 7 ft 7 in (2.31 m) tall, he was the tallest player in the history of the National Basketball Association. He was officially measured and listed at 7 feet 6 3⁄4 inches (2.305 m) tall in the Guinness Book of World Records. He is believed to have been born on October 16, 1962, in either Turalei or Gogrial, Sudan (now South Sudan). He was the son of a Dinka tribal elder who gave him the name "Manute," which means "special blessing."
Mr. Bol played for two colleges and four NBA teams over his career. A center, he was known as a specialist player; he was considered among the best shot-blockers in the history of the sport, but other aspects of his game were considered fairly weak. Over the course of his career, Mr. Bol blocked more shots than he scored points, making him the only NBA player ever to do so. He is second all-time in NBA history in terms of average blocked shots per game and ranks 15th on the career blocks list.
I arranged for interviews for Mr. Bol during his participation in a 300-mile walk from NY to DC to shed light on the genocide and slavery in Sudan. I later coordinated media coverage of Mr. Bol's funeral at the Washington National Cathedral in DC, as well as the media for the five-year anniversary of his death.
