I'm a technology public relations specialist with substantial experience providing strategic counsel and executing on corporate and product communications programs. I've done everything from helping small startups launch at DEMO to maintaing a steady stream of coverage in business, tech and VC press to helping companies get acquired and funded. I've built communities on Facebook from the ground up for major media companies like The Economist and have even been known to do a guerilla marketing campaign here and there.
My years of working with the media have helped me cultivate strong working relationships with a broad array of top tier traditional and new media contacts in the business, technology, venture capital and consumer press. I have secured numerous stories for clients in outlets like the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Wired Magazine, ABC News, TechCrunch, GigaOm, Mashable, ReadWriteWeb and VentureBeat.
My experience includes planning and executing business and tech media relations programs, consumer tours in New York, blogger relations programs, Facebook and other social networking campaigns, Twitter campaigns, reviews programs, securing speaking opportunities and awards for clients, and supporting clients at a list of trade shows too long to list.
Areas of experience include tech startups, search, mobile industry, mobile apps, Facebook apps, social gaming, data industry, venture capital, open source, digital music, new media, and telecom.
Previous and current clients include Rdio, Jive, Vlingo, GetJar, Jigsaw, Serious Business, Dorthy, The Economist, Myspace, Playfish, Songkick, Skype, Microsoft Tellme, Technorati, Skyfire, Zend Technologies, and Index Ventures.
