Hello.

Looking To Hire a Veteran Communications Professional?

Strategic Communications & PR

I am a seasoned Public Relations  and Marketing professional with a background heavy in  Clean Energy, Transportation and Emerging Technologies. 

After 10 Years working for agencies and a successful freelance career, I am looking for a new place to call Home and put all of my passion towards.

Public + Media Relations

Throughout my career I have managed successful media relations campaigns for both target and mainstream media. Each campaign is targeted for specific company goals and KPIs, much more than just run-of-the-mill outreach.

Operational Management

Alongside Public Relations, I also have experience in developing operating procedures and processes to ensure a healthy workflow for internal communication teams. By inviting me to your team, I will ensure we operate as a well-oiled machine.

Thought Leadership

All effective communications campaigns include thought leadership. I have experience in drafting technical speaking abstracts, award nominations as well as ghostwriting pieces for top-level executives. All of which can be further leveraged in future marketing and campaigns.

Digital Advertising

Whether it’s social media or other online advertising, I have you covered. I have successfully managed growth marketing strategies for numerous companies in various industries.

Social Media Management

While numbers and growth matter – so does your branding. As social media plays so heavily into PR, I also have extensive experience in this field. I often utilize social media as a way to continue rapport with media professionals and influencers.

Content Marketing

Good content – blogs, videos, abstracts, white papers and more – can be utilized in numerous capacities. They can be used in digital marketing funnels, social media posts as well as used during a PR push. This is another area I’m proud to have worked in.

About Me

I began my career with Sony Global, before leveraging those contacts into a successful freelance career. During this time, I managed PR and communications for emerging technology companies such as SeatGeek, Lottery.com, FieldPulse and TapJets.

In 2014, I joined a boutique PR firm focused on clean technology. Throughout my time there, I had the pleasure of working with clients in sectors such as fleet electrification, solar and storage, consumer EV tech and utility software solutions. My work with these clients surpassed general media relations and also touched on thought leadership, technical writing and digital marketing management.

My clients during this time included companies such as AMPLY Power, Axiom Exergy, PXiSE Energy Solutions, energyOrbit, OutBack Power and more. Through these efforts, I also managed outreach for partner campaigns that included Honda Motor Co., Whole Foods, The State of Delaware, The State of New York and others.

As a long-tenured member of the team, I also assisted the agency in it’s project management, and development of its standard operating procedures. As a consultant, I would later take this knack for process creation to other agencies and in-house teams to aid in impactful marketing and PR flows.

While the bulk of my recent work has surrounded clean energy, I also have experience in fields such as SaaS and enterprise solutions, entertainment, consumer goods and public affairs.

After nearly 10 years of working in agency settings and running my own freelance business, I am passionately looking for a new place to call home. I genuinely believe that by putting my expertise and energy into one company and vision – I will have the sense of ownership and vigor to be an incredibly useful asset.

My Approach & Philosophy

Communications goes beyond a press release, a blog post or a social media campaign. Communications is a multi-layered system that needs consistent creativity and balance. While media and public relations are at the heart of everything I do, I commonly incorporate social media outreach, thought leadership and technical writing into all of my projects.

Not only do I firmly believe in a “many armed beast” approach for communications, I also strive for unique standard operating procedures to ensure the entire team agrees on messaging, vision and the desired outcome.

My insistence on creativity, no matter how small the project, and my familiarity with best practices has given me a long and successful career in communications. I hope to bring these skills to a new company as a full-time team member and partner.
