Over the years I've had the pleasure and rare opportunity to have a front row seat in the lives of some of the nation's most prominent leaders, ceo's, entertainers, celebrities, and athletes--the real movers and shakers in the world.
Along the way, I've learned some valuable lessons from many of these VIP's who frequently find themselves thrust in the limelight forced to face the media daily. I've been fortunate to watch closely how they are able to capitalize on real media opportunities without even missing a beat.
Working in the television and public relations industry over the years has taught me some very important lessons on how to handle and execute solid media relations tactics and strategies.
I am committed to bringing my experience, integrity and creativity to my clients as I represent them with the primary goal of protecting and enhancing their brands.
I'm excited about the opportunity to help build your brand while I can also bring positive media coverage on your behalf to your organization.
Let's face it at the end of the day, in many cases we all know that people are going to talk about something, they may even want to focus on the negative, so when it comes to the media -- I say let's give them something to talk about...
