As a leader in social media marketing, I created the renowned, precedent-setting Up Your Budget Treasure Hunt for Cendant. 

This 4-week, 16-city search for $160K in cash was the first-ever entirely blog-based viral marketing campaign, promoted exclusively through blogger outreach and blog advertising.

In only 4 weeks, it generated a million unique visits, over 10 million page views, and more than 300 online and offline stories – for less than the cost of a 30-second national ad on network TV. 

I conceived, edited and launched and the 25-author blog-based online community Clutter Control Freak, for Stacks and Stacks a California-based top 300 Internet retailer of products for home and office organization. Launched in July 2007, the blog was recently voted one of the Top 10 Business Blogs. 

My articles and case studies about Internet marketing trends appear in MarketingProfs, MediaPost, Businessweek Online, and several other publications.

Before turning my talent to the Internet in 1995, I ran an award-winning New York PR firm that grew to one of the 100 largest independent PR firms in the US, with clients including Stew Leonard’s, Miracle-Gro Plant Food, The American Dairy Association, Kaneka Corporation (Tokyo: JKFC) and many more.
