“I have worked with Steve for nearly a decade, a rarity in a public relations agency corporate relationship. But in that 10 years Steve has become more than just a contact or vendor for us. He's truly a partner in our business plans.

No matter the time of day or night, I can always rely on Steve for expert counsel, the utmost integrity and a level of professionalism that other PR pros would (or should) truly marvel. are the best in the business."

We're strategists, writers, coaches and storytellers.

As former journalists, we know how to dig for what is interesting to our audience, and how to grab their attention with our communications. As former corporate managers, we know how to work with many diverse groups within a company -- senior executives, engineers, financial analysts and sales teams. Corporate experience has also taught us how to effectively communicate with employees to further business goals.

We're big enough to do many jobs for our clients, but we’re small enough to make sure clients don't get lost in the shuffle. Our clients have ranged from start-up businesses, such as small wineries and Internet companies, to large home builders, real estate brokerages and multi-national corporations.

With each new project, we never forget that our clients are in business to be profitable. It's our job to shape strategies and messages that persuade people to buy your products or ideas.
