Need to create effective messages?
I can help you.
With thirty years experience in Broadcast Media as a Journalist, News Anchor, Reporter, Television Producer, Broadcast Instructor and with a Master's Degree in Professional Communications, you are in good hands when it comes to getting the word out to an audience.
As well as my creative life which this website features, I recently decided to use my media experience to create political messaging for candidates and am pleased to report they both won their respective campaigns. What I understand from having years of real world experience is how you connect with a mass audience. Most people miss this VERY important part of messaging. Communicating to mass audiences is what I have done for my entire career.
I am also conducting long form interviews called, In Conversation, so you can get your message out accurately. You have control of the content and the distribution.
