Founder of a NY/Metro ad agency, internet pioneer, copywriter, new business guy, public speaker...plus I cook, clean, and make coffee.
During my career, I've made millions of pitches and presentations to Fortune 500s and start-ups, clients and prospects.
While earning a Masters in Teaching, I saw that students weren't learning the kind of communication skills they needed to make themselves understood and that was holding them back. That realization, combined with my business experience became the inspiration for Presentation TuneUps.
The marquee accounts for the ad agency I founded in NY included the New York Stock Exchange, Fiduciary Trust, Hertz, SONY, a well-heeled American leather goods purveyor, and some high-end stereo stores - to name a few. We did it all.
I now work regularly with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and I mentor start-up firms, entrepreneurs, and CEOs in my Board of Advisors role with the RAISE Forum hosted by Emory University's Goizueta Business School. Corporations and their c-suite execs also call me when communication matters.
The agency I founded created campaigns for a cellphone company that grew into Verizon, and a payroll company that exited to ADP. From my home office, I built the first website for the Citizen Watch Company and my agency partnered with others to sell athletic shoes online for the first time for The Sports Authority.
I earned a Master at Teaching Degree from Agnes Scott College and a Bachelor Degree in Literature (Education minor) from The New School in New York.
Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening my axe.
Truth is a process.
