Greetings curious visitor!
Welcome to my online portfolio. Here you will find a brief overview of the work I've produced as a communications professional. My particular areas of expertise include public relations, journalism, and new media production. The samples provided here will give you a taste of my skills and abilities in each of these areas.
A bit about me:
I currently serve as Account Support & Video Specialist at Baker Public Relations in Albany, NY. In this role, I regularly develop, distribute, and follow up on press releases, plan and oversee press events, outline and implement social media initiatives, organize and carry out strategic communications plans, and secure media appearances on behalf of clients. My specialty at this firm involves the production of high definition marketing videos for a diverse list of businesses, organizations, and individuals.
Prior to joining Baker Public Relations, I served five years as Assistant News Director at WAMC Northeast Public Radio - Albany, NY's National Public Radio member station. My principal responsibilities at WAMC centered on the daily management of the organization’s newsroom and all resources and activities associated with it. In carrying out my duties there, I developed an extensive network of regional and national media contacts, and produced or oversaw the production of news stories detailing significant state and national developments.
I hold a Master of Arts in Communications (Public Relations/New Media/Journalism) from The College of Saint Rose. The graduate program that led to this degree has outfitted me with extensive training in the areas of public relations history and practice, external relations, crisis communications, new media production, and social media use. I was the sole graduate student to be awarded the Graduate Honors in Communications Award by Saint Rose in 2013.
