Biography

For over 25 years, I've helped clients in the U.S. and Israel sell their vision and their story to the media, industry analysts, thought leaders, and throughout the blogosphere. In addition to applying very traditional PR methods and having or knowing how to cultivate the right type of media contacts, I'm helping my clients become successful content producers and curators in their own right via the Social Internet.

The idea is to not just sell my clients to the media, but help them be discovered online. Call it corporate communications, story telling, blogging, media relations or just plain old pitching - I blend art, science, method, and will in what I do.

I've worked with emerging technology companies to help promote the beginnings of the personal computer revolution, the idea of sending and receiving data through a cell phone network, connecting computers through something called networking, one of the first Internet cafes in the world, the rise of computer security, the commercialization of VoIP, the creation of the WiFi standard, the deployment of IPTV, being an evangelist for the wired home network standard known as G.hn, the world's first Windows-based true multi-touch tablet PC, and many other transformational technologies that are now considered mainstream.

The Wall Street Journal, Good Morning America, The New York Times, CNet, ZDNet, Kiplinger, Telephony, and many other media outlets have made note of the work I do.

My clients have been featured in The New York Times, The Financial Times, Gizmodo, PBS' Media Shift, Forbes, Vanity Fair, eWeek, The Guardian, USA Today, The Village Voice, and many more. Long-standing relationships with leading industry analysts including Gartner Group, IDC, Forrester Research, Frost & Sullivan, Parks Associates and In-Stat enable my clients to engage with, and share their thought leadership in emerging technologies and trends.
