Sausalito, California, United States
A bit about me: I've mastered my marketing and editorial skills since the early 90s in New York City when I was recruited by Weber Shandwick to lead an effort between the United Nations Development Program and Dun and Bradstreet, establishing a coding system for e-commerce while the technology was still in its infancy. I left NYC in 2001 and moved to San Francisco where I worked as an editor for Hollywood Today and as a tech reporter for VatorNews, while leading each PR marketing team at AH Marketing Group.
Prior to coming onboard at the Agency, I served as the editor-in-chief of The Scope Weekly. My publication focuses on companies and individuals that are set to make a mark on society but often go unnoticed and don't get the coverage they deserve to inspire excellence, including entrepreneurs, artists, filmmakers, writers, and thought leaders.
My public relations experience ranges from helping startups and brands, from various industries with diverse needs, thrive in their target markets. I’ve pioneered local, national, and international campaigns for clients across the US and Canada, and my expertise has been sought out by academics and national ambassadors. I've led guest lectures at Concordia University, presenting various seminars to students on public relations and journalistic processes in the age of new media and social networking. The Consulate Trade Commission in Silicon Valley hosted my last company, Rush PR News, at the startup incubator Plug and Play Tech Center to participate in their plug and play acceleration and collaboration track as a model company.
I’m an American citizen but was born and raised in Montreal, and as such, I speak fluent French and English.
