I am a storyteller. I am a bridge between the worlds of high tech and high touch. The main communities I build are between thought leaders in Technology, Entertainment and Sustainability. (Kind of like a TED conference.) These are the early adopters, risk takers and super connected connecters who can set your ideas on fire! As a veteran Silicon Valley tech PR executive and product launch visibility expert, I have launched more than 30 paradigm-shifting products and consumer technology companies in my career -- products that changed your life and are used by tens of millions of consumers. I was on the teams that introduced stuff we not take for granted -- like email, video editing, ink jet printers and mobile devices. I've promoted stuff that had 5 million to 40 million customers -- paying customers, not eyeballs. We did this almost 100% with free PR and social media, not paid advertising. Increasingly all business must be social, sustainable, sharable and conscious. And I believe social media is the catalyst of this conscious convergence and shift. I've learned that it's not about "content" or "engagement" -- it's about creating authentic communities around an event that spread the word for you. I combine social media with "off line" media -- PR, event listings, print ads, email lists and street teams. Move forward, into the future. I can help you make a Visibility Shift.
