About Me


About  Me
I started my freelance marketing business in 2007 as a side to my "day job".
That job brought in the proverbial steady paycheck but it was not a great place for my joy.
Still, in that context, programming planning, connecting with people, getting the word out on events I curated, and the rush of it all coming together kept me going.
That made me decide to start offering creative people, small businesses and entrepreneurs low cost marketing services. Soon I was also helping with branding, event planning and fundraisers for all sorts of good causes.
Eventually, in 2016, I took the leap and set out on my own.
Over the years I have had many successful experiences and learned a lot along the way.
Also, over those years, with the growth of technology, incredibly cost effective opportunities have presented themselves in terms of marketing and promotion.
When COVID-19 hit in March 2020 we were all thrust into a strange new world. In that world it became even clearer that digital outreach and virtual events were crucial  to staying connected and relevant. That will be true into the future.
 Right now, and into that future, I can help you now in the following ways:

  • Getting the word out on your organization, event, performance or project.
  • Creating or enhancing  your  social media presence.
  • Connecting you with your customers or followers through e- newsletters.
  • Creating virtual events.
  • Direct you toward funding sources and income generating ideas.
  • Guide you through opportunities for partnership and cross promotional opportunities.
  •  Transforming your organization's profile and operations with state of the art best practices.

My focus is currently on non profit 501(c) 3 organizations but all inquiries are welcome.
