Writer and Consultant in San Francisco, California

Hire me

I have an eclectic background in technology ranging from founding a tech startup to leading Marketing and Product teams for high-growth startups. In PR, I have never failed at getting a client new press attention. Here's why.

As a former TV reporter, it was my daily job to 1) become an expert on a story 2) analyze how it's important to everyone 3) highlight people that effectively convey the story, and 4) relate to different types of people.

I have since gone on to use these skills to my advantage in PR, Marketing, and Advertising. Empathy is what makes me good at my job. I laugh, I cry, I get angry, I get sad, because, in order to tell a good story, I need to feel it.

In PR, I have attained client mentions in over 300 different news organizations. Collectively, the companies I've worked for have raised over $321 million in venture capital.

I've traveled to over 80 countries, extensively interacting with locals so I can understand what matters to people from all walks of life.

I have secured mentions in top-tier media outlets, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Playboy, USA Today, Buzzfeed, Elite Daily, CNET, The Hollywood Reporter, and many others.

Kevin started his career as a television journalist, working in several markets, including Columbus, Ohio and San Diego, CA. While in journalism, he served in a variety of roles, including TV Reporter, Producer, Anchor, and Bureau Chief.
