With some 36 years in journalism, media relations, media training and crisis communications, I'm a resource to my clients.
I write and produce speeches, editorial/advertorial/media relations materials and strategies, and advertising copy. I also produce videos, design and host media training sessions, provide issues management advice and facilitate translation, all directly or through a network of contacts.
My career path has wound from the ranks of front-line reporting, to international assignments and on to management and marketing, to teaching a post-graduate college program to being a successful freelancer and working in media relations and strategies. More recently I've ghostwritten, edited, designed and laid out and packaged two books for private clients.
Along the way I have overseen two web launches, a web site and magazine in French and English and managed a copy writing and translation department.
Today I provide media consulting and training services to a variety of boutique media relations agencies as well as some hands on media outreach.
