"The Brighter Side of Homeless": a guide to overcoming homelessness
Plse share. Thx.
I cofounded MAYO Communications in 1995, which has mushroomed into very successful international public relations agency based in LA, with offices in San Diego, New York. In my spare time, I currently write on LA Business Investment stories for the Examiner.com, about transportation, entertainment trends, TV shows, film and lifestyle news for Technorati.com. For the last decade I've written PR industry articles for the infamous Jack O’Dwyer PR Publications, http://odwyerpr.com, NY.
I serve on the Silicon Beach Young Professionals (YP) Board of Directors, one of the fastest growing groups in SoCal. Since January monthly attendance of entrepreneurs, startup CEOs and Investors has jumped 500%. The mixers are sponsored by #GOOGLE and #GODADDY EXAMINER: (http://goo.gl/UOzOqa) and TECHNORATI: (http://goo.gl/GFlbLC)
I have scores of journalism, writing and photography awards, but the award I'm most proud of is the Medal of Valor, California State Firefighters Association for saving the life of a noted UCLA Medical Center doctor from his burning SUV following an early morning head-on crash. I was on my way to a crisis workshop in Century City, too.
I enjoy mentoring buddy PR and media pros and speak at local universities such as USC, UCLA and Loyola Marymount. I maintain dozens of blogs on every industry from business, entertainment to high tech and in social media, too. Some highlights are listed in the column on your right.
I really appreciate feedback and comments on my, and just this year started a new private group called Entertainment Publicists & Communicators (more) on Linkedin.com, which has grows at around two to three dozen new members a week at approaching 5,000 members in a short time. Only communicators can join.
Before public relations, I carved an award-winning TV and radio news career covering LA Riots, earthquakes, courts cops and LA City hall. I'm one of two of original writers on Today in LA Weekends, 1st 90 minute show on NBCLA. As a newsreporter my voice could be heard on KGIL Newstalk 1260 AM, on KFI 640 AM, KNX, CBS and NBC Mutual News. During the devastating earthquakes, wildfires and LA riots he worked as a news correspondent for NBC Mutual New, KNX, KRLA and KZLA FM radio stations.
I grew up in Washington State. I obtained my Bachelors in Communications and Journalism (double major) at Western Washington University, Bellingham, WA. I received technical photography training as US Navy Photographer, (US Naval Schools of Photography, Pensacola, FL) and manned a military CIO and photo lab on base at Oak Harbor, Whidbey Island, WA. (Honorable discharge).
I'm past president and an active board member of the Entertainment Publicists Professional Society (EPPS) with chapters in New York and LA. I'm also a past board member and publicity committee chairman of Public Relations Society of America, LA Chapter. (PRSA).
