Story
Tagline
Passionate about clear communications
Introduction
I've spent years in the field of communications, as a reporter and editor, as a government aide, and as a PR executive and counselor in crisis PR, issue management, reputation management, and organizational communications. Now I am moving into an area of real interest: managing content for clients who wish to be thought leaders in their respective fields.
Bragging rights
I helped create and developed the content for the world's first museum-quality exhibit on human trafficking. The exhibit, "Invisible: Slavery Today" is on display at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center at the Banks in downtown Cincinnati. Earlier, I was the lead author for a seminal report on Cincinnati Public School reform -- the Buenger Report.
