The core of my mission is teaching quality storytelling
to help brands think like journalists
and tell better brand stories.

  | Startup Advising  |  

I serve as an advisor to a number of startups in the native advertising, content, marketing and media space, lending my industry experience and expertise on topics ranging from product and pricing to positioning and marketing. I’m also happy to open my expansive branded content network to foster connections between other expert advisors, potential clients and customers.

For startups and small businesses outside the content space, I advise on content marketing, social strategy, blog strategy, messaging and positioning, and provide feedback on pitch decks and other sales materials.
