Talent wins games but teamwork and intelligence win championships. - Michael Jordan
HOW'D YOU GET HERE?
I was setting out to be a journalist, which was my college major and seemed to be a natural fit for my inquisitive, always-curious mind and passable knack with a keyboard. However, I also truly enjoyed my marketing classes, and I was disappointed to seemingly have to choose one profession over the other. At that time, I hadn’t even heard of public relations until I stumbled upon a local ad that called for an agency intern with acumen in both marketing and writing to help support exciting clients like Teen People Magazine and Gordon Biersch Brewery. Could this possibly be for real? I remember thinking right away that I’d potentially found my calling. Two decades later, including the last 15+ years working with incredible people and clients at Finn Partners, I’m certain that I have.
I’ve always had a passion for technology. I’m the guy that family and friends call when the computer goes dark, the cable box freezes, or the phone won’t hold a charge. It’s exciting to be able to apply this passion for technology to my career on a daily basis. My experience includes working with companies of all sizes across market disciplines and stages of growth. As one of Finn Partners’ technology leads, I’m focused on placing clients front and center with the audiences they need to reach via traditional media relations and integrated marketing programs. My specialties span media strategy; messaging and positioning; media training; industry analyst relations; writing; copy editing; M&A/IPOs and team building.
