January, 1999 – Present (almost 21 years)

A former newspaper reporter turned public relations consultant and writer, I have won publicity placements in media such as CNBC, CNN, CBS, PBS Newshour, MSNBC, FOX News, NPR, San Francisco Chronicle, International Herald-Tribune, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, USA Today, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, Inc. magazine, The National Law Journal, ABA Journal, Forbes, Fortune, BusinessWeek, Investor’s Business Daily, The Economist, The Washington Post, The New Republic, and The New York Times.

My writing work for clients includes feature articles, books, op-eds, speeches, and TV and radio advertisement scripts. I have co-authored The New Idea Factory, a nonfiction book about finding and financing university-born technologies for commercial uses, and have edited and ghostwritten other business and parenting/self-help books and book proposals on behalf of clients.

Besides helping others win good press, I also contribute articles about wine/spirits, food and travel topics to publications such as The Washington Post, Hemispheres, Tampa Bay Times, Wine Enthusiast, Lonely Planet’s Budget Travel, Boston Globe, Cracked (yes, that Cracked), Dallas Morning News, Chicago Tribune, AAA Living, PUNCH, National Geographic Traveler and Wine & Spirits.
