I have helped place stories in tiny local newspapers, huge international publications like the New York Times, and everything in between. I have helped spread several “viral” stories that made headlines globally, and I also have experience in crisis communications. Click here for examples of my press releases.
I pride myself in being a reliable and valuable resource for reporters, and developed an excellent reputation in the Portland media market. I have have pitched ideas, placed stories, and provided experts for publications large and small, including: The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, NBC News, ABC News, CBS News, CNN, FOX News, National Public Radio, ESPN, Deadspin, Sports Illustrated, The Oregonian, The Seattle Times, and many more.
