Thanks for visiting. I look forward to discussing how I can collaborate with you and your team for your upcoming endeavors. I’ve included several writing samples (Published Travel & Published Lifestyle) of past work on this site, along with links so you can email me directly, or simply stay connected via social media.
With a dynamic fifteen-year history of working with a diverse collection of projects and assignments, I am able to provide my expertise and freelance services to clients today – seamlessly merging the worlds of writing, social media, marketing and promotion.
Having an International perspective on business, combined with a firm grasp on the latest media technologies, I enjoy the opportunity to think outside of the box while finding creative strategies that best benefit clients. As ongoing assignments, I am a contributor for The Huffington Post and a correspondent for The Examiner, specializing in International Travel and Internet Strategies.
Fortunately, I’ve had the distinct pleasure of contributing to a variety of fantastic global publications for traditional print magazines, as well as digital publications and Blogs. Topics include travel, tourism, hospitality, profiles, performing arts, fashion and lifestyle. I also collaborate with several media companies to provide editorial content for their travel and hospitality clients, while continuing to develop articles for World Spa & Travel Magazine, Eater, JustLuxe, A Luxury Travel Blog, Global Living Magazine, LuxeGetaways & more.
Among my upcoming published features, I discovered the perfect Miami day with one of the most prominent hands-on philanthropist and businesswoman today, Ms. Adrienne Arsht for BESPOKE, the magazine for The St. Regis Hotels by Starwood Hotels & Resorts; I collaborated with Trina Turk and her husband Jonathan Skow of the Trina Turk fashion lifestyle brand to reveal all of their Los Angeles shopping secrets for LOEWS, the magazine for the Loews Hotels and Resorts; I featured the prominent designers who collaborated with Montage Deer Valley to create their designer model residences for MONTAGE, the magazine for the Montage Hotels and Resorts; and I explored Puerto Rico’s Bahia Beach with Hedge Fund Manager John Paulson for BESPOKE, the magazine for The St. Regis Hotels by Starwood Hotels & Resorts.
Whether for customized direct promotions and endorsements, or developing content for feature editorials, my professional background and life experiences provide a uniquely honest and direct approach when collaborating on these projects. Always exciting, a typical day for me can include working with celebrity Chef Cat Cora to learn more about her impressive International brand of cookbooks, television shows, restaurants and cooking products; exploring the exclusive tower suites at The Waldorf Astoria New York; taking an inside look at the new Viceroy Hotel New York; researching the history of the macaron with Ladurée Paris; bringing awareness to community activities through the philanthropy endeavors of San Francisco based celebrity Chef Yigit Pura; providing expert commentary to news outlets about breaking hotel, aviation and restaurant news; or turning the Caribbean islands inside out to develop first-hand personal recommendations for travelers.
Although my primary focus is centered around public relations, marketing and freelance writing within the travel, tourism, hospitality and lifestyle industries, my experience also consists of in-depth work within the entertainment industry. This has involved the development and production of video and broadcast media for a variety of brands and events; including television pilots, promotional videos, PSAs, special interest DVDs and viral video campaigns.

As a principal at DMB Public Relations, my partners and I have developed a boutique firm that provides a high level of personable attention to clients, with expertise and specialized public relations, media, event representation, branding and social media services focused on the travel, tourism, hospitality and lifestyle industries.
This work with DMB-PR, combined with my freelance writing and consulting, allows me to work with a pretty fantastic collection of clients and friends.
