Story
Introduction

A media and public relations professional since 1994, Scott joined The Cline Group following a successful two-year term as a solo communications practitioner in Tel Aviv, after emigrating from New York City in 2009.  Scott generated publicity in the U.S. for a mix of high-tech startups and nonprofits, as well as authored their core website messages, and programmed their social media channels with daily, relevant content to increase influencer status.

Prior to being his own boss, Scott served as communications director and helped launch The Organization for Refuge, Asylum & Migration (ORAM), the only international NGO exclusively dedicated to advocating for refugees fleeing sexual or gender based violence.

In New York, Scott had an extensive track record positioning authors as thought leaders during his six years with Planned Television Arts, the largest independent book publicity firm in the U.S. and a division of Ruder Finn, one of the largest privately owned public relations agencies in the world.

He began his career with corporate PR firm Robert Marston and Associates, Inc., leveraging his BFA in film & television production from Tisch School of the Arts at NYU to serve double duty as RMA’s media trainer and an account executive.  Scott concluded his tenure in New York with PR boutique powerhouse PKPR, where in addition to directing public relations accounts and cultivating new business, he implemented press operations for live events, including managing the red carpet.

Throughout his career, Scott has generated publicity for an eclectic range of clients including authors (Caroline Kennedy, Sarah Ferguson, Deepak Chopra), high-tech startups (fring, nanoRep), internet culture (The Webby Awards, Internet Week New York), arts & entertainment (IFP/The Gotham Awards, The Moth), financial institutions (Merrill Lynch, Morningstar), media (Manhattan Media, The Final Edition), pharmaceuticals (Tylenol, Novartis), gay & lesbian (Queer Lounge, HIV is Still a Big Deal) travel (Orbitz, Sherman’s Travel), health & beauty (SpaFinder, OM Yoga), food & beverage (ROASTe), and nonprofits (Because I Care – Israel, Arts Engine).

His placements have included The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Early Show, Fox & Friends, The View, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, TIME, Gizmodo, CNET, The Next Web, DailyCandy and others.

Scott’s extracurricular activities include completing twelve marathons, performing five times at Carnegie Hall as part of the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus, leading pro-Israel activism in the LGBT community, doing volunteer work, and loving his dog Petey.

I logged in today for first time in a while.  New interface - and login.  Whether I choose FB, Twitter or Google - it doesn't find the feeds I'd already added.  It's like I'm starting over - where's my account?  Boo

Thank you, David - that's very helpful (and logical).  I'll try it.  It probably explains why I didn't find my account.

The first thing your videos grab me with is your on-camera presence; you're very personable, charming and funny.  But, really - all that text, graphics, maps, reference to dialects across the country.....what did you study in school?  You've got some serious linguistics shit going on here!

Great job, Daniel !  I'm curious what group you belong to that this speech was for.  Will have to investigate New Story Leadership.

No offense to the dad - who is awesome, b/c (1) he made this kid, (2) he decided to start shooting video when he saw Jackson's reaction to the song, (3) he's so responsible that he's only making sure his son is OK, but - shut up, dad, you're interrupting what's awesome about this video!  We wanna see the beauty of your son emoting, and you keep ruining the experience.  Dial it back a little, bro...   OK, rant over.

I'm ecstatic & proud right now - an updated version of an essay I wrote a few months ago has been published today by The Huffington Post. I've known it was coming for a week now - and had to keep the secret (something that was very hard for me!) Please consider leaving a comment below the article on HuffPo.com - and sharing it via your own personal social media connections.

I know a lot of my American friends think I am sounding like a "crazy Right-winger" these days...but it's really hard for me to help you understand what it's like living as an Israeli in this world...what Israel is about and what we're up against...how the media & nonprofits & liberals hold us to a double-standard, and we can do no right in a lot of people's eyes. Anyway, I hope you take 5 minutes to read my essay and write me back about it.

What a great 2nd-night-of-Hanukkah gift !!!
