    Media Relations, Social Media and Writing Services

  • About

    I've developed and executed media relations, social media and writing programs for dozens of B2B and B2C companies, ranging from Fortune 500 organizations to venture-backed startups.


    AdWeek named me on the PR Industry's 30 Under 30 List for 2015. In 2013, I won the Publicity Club of New England Striker Award, which recognizes New England’s best young PR professional of the year.


    I graduated from Brandeis University summa cum laude with a B.A. in economics and philosophy, and was a visiting student in economics and philosophy at Oxford University.


    Below you'll find a services overview, testimonials of my work and, of course, my contact information.

    Media Relations

    My approach to media relations is straight-forward, honest, and effective.


    Together, we'll decide on the news and opinions your company would like to share, and how we'd like to communicate these stories to editors, reporters, bloggers, and any other relevant members of today's media.


    I've had consistent success over the years in helping my clients get the media attention they're seeking. You're welcome to view testimonials of my work below.

    Social Media

    I create and manage both paid and organic social media programs that support specific communications initiatives, such as:

    • Promoting product or service launches, business initiatives or events;
    • Engaging with prospective clients;
    • Communicating with existing customers; and
    • Increasing executive visibility.

    I offer a number of writing services:

    • Press releases: From product announcements to executive appointments and company growth updates, I draft clear and compelling press releases. 
    • Blog posts: I work with companies on the entire blogging process, from brainstorming blog ideas for a target audience to drafting the posts. 
    • Customer case studies: The world should know about your happy customers, and why they're thrilled with your product or service. I interview customers and write their success stories.
