Portfolio

Album review in key music publication.

My client, an Asbury Park musician, released a new album in the fall. Leading the pack among other articles I secured was this in The Aquarian - possibly the best record review I've read this decade!

TV News segment supporting new film and speaking practice.

My client, a TV actor, stuntman and filmmaker, released a short film about his father's suicide in Sept., and this month, launched a speaking practice to bring awareness to suicide, substance abuse, and how to effectively process emotions. I got Long Island TV News to interview him at an engagement.
