PR Account Director for 451 Marketing.
We represent consumer products, tech brands, start-ups… At present I’ve been there only a short time but I’m absolutely loving it.
I’ve been a publicist for more than seven years. Before joining 451, I was with AEG Live, working on national concert tours, regional tours, local shows, etc. And before that, I was a publicist for a digital PR agency called Think Jam. In addition to developing and executing publicity and social media campaigns for theatrical and home entertainment clients, I directed the blogger outreach initiatives for 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. Prior to that, I was the PR Manager for Millennium Entertainment, an independent film distributor. I had the opportunity to work on Oren Moverman’s critically acclaimed film Rampart, starring Woody Harrelson, Ben Foster, Anne Heche, Ice Cube, Cynthia Nixon, Sigourney Weaver, Robin Wright and Steve Buscemi. My first awards campaign! Other theatrical projects included Puncture, starring Chris Evans and Joel Schumacher’s thriller Trespass, starring Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman.
I began my adventures in PR with Crown Media Family Networks, owner and operator of Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel.
Most exciting or meaningful work project?
Well, in the last year, I’ve worked on campaigns for The Rolling Stones and The Who. I certainly never thought those names would end up in my portfolio.
I got involved with SMCLA because…
I love and respect the people in it. I need more people like this in my life.
