Welcome to my blog! This is my chance to comment, editorialize, and ramble. Nothing posted on this blog is meant to represent my employers or clients.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve produced PR/marcom results for companies in the life sciences, pharmagenomics, biotech, voice recognition, consumer electronics, e-commerce, healthcare, IT security, software, hardware, consumer products, and hospitality industries.
In 1999, I started TechMarcom, an independent PR agency/consultancy specializing in marketing communications for startups through for large corporations.
In September 2011, I relegated TechMarcom to a part-time/project basis, and became a full-time Instructor of Communication and Newspaper Adviser at Southern New Hampshire University (Manchester, NH). I’m helping to build up SNHU’s Communications program, including the development of a PR minor, and establishment of the first PRSSA chapter in the state of New Hampshire. I teach Public Relations, PR Writing, PR Campaign Planning, Social Media, Journalism, Public Speaking, and Intro to Mass Comm.
I have been recognized as a “Top Marketing Professor on Twitter” by Social Media Marketing Magazine each month from Dec. 2010 through July 2013 (the most recent list as of November 2013).
As a strategist and journalist, my articles have appeared in The Boston Globe, The LA Times, The Christian Science Monitor, Newsweek, Crain Communications, TechLiving, ZDNet, CMP Publications, Mass High Tech, DM News, and more.
My peer review article was published in The Journal of Hospitality & Leisure Marketing, and I have “ghost-written” articles and white papers for company executives.
While running TechMarcom, I served as an Adjunct Instructor of marcom and PR courses at Emerson College (Boston), and Bentley University (Waltham, MA), where I won the 2009 Service Learning Faculty Award. I became Faculty Adviser of Emerson College’s chapter of PRSSA in January 2011.
