I’m a Los Angeles-based communications strategist and advisor who helps clients communicate effectively in order to create impact. My approach is informed by creativity, systems thinking and an emphasis on facilitating balance and coordination in a world that is rapidly shifting away from the rigidity and limitations of silos.
I am also an editor, writer, ghostwriter and producer.
Over the last 10 years, I have advised clients ranging from nationally-recognized nonprofits, major utilities and media companies, bestselling authors and top tier publishing houses to high profile figures in entertainment, politics and Silicon Valley.
But just like “legalese” or financial jargon, there is truly a barrier to entry when it comes to successfully navigating the public sphere. It kills me when people who have the potential to become major changemakers shy away from doing what they’re meant to do because they feel like they’ve been thrown into the deep end with no life preserver. OR — when they wind up paying PR firms thousands and thousands of dollars only to receive services they’re not ready for, without the kind of support they actually need at that time.
I’ve worked at those firms and can share my experience and knowledge with you — as well as my personal, authentic approach — as a partner, in a working relationship built on mutual respect and a shared goal (yours!). I want my services to help you, not hinder you further. If you’re interested in potentially working together, I offer a free 30 minute consultation. You can reach me here.
More about me:
In 2018 I earned a master’s degree in Social Science from UCLA, where I conducted research on myth and ideological values embedded in modern media and entertainment and how to tap into them when storytelling to overcome polarization and create social change. Read more about my thesis, “Reading Between the Battle Lines: Decoding Values in Tweets About Gun Control,” here. I earned bachelor’s degrees in journalism and sociology from NYU, from which I graduated with honors.
In my spare time, I write sketch comedy and perform improv and stand-up around LA (FOR FUN), and have taken the stage at The Comedy Store, UCB, The Second City, The Hollywood Improv, The Clubhouse and iO West. I’m also a lifelong bookworm, dabble in various visual arts and am slowly, but surely, learning how not to kill my plants. Read my full professional bio here.
