I developed and produced this interview series of the C.O.O. of Criterium-Tauscher Cronacher professional engineers. While Criterium-Tauscher Cronacher Engineers is a leading New York based provider of building related engineering services founded in 1957 by Professional Engineer Arthur Tauscher they spoke of the need to take successful strides in communicating a new vision to clients and media. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g48qhtNSTug&list=HL1361885816&feature=mh_lolz

Events

(Privately Held Tech Company 1/25/2012)
To increase visibility for a company whose challenge was to keep client confidentiality had it's challenges. I collaborated with Mike Daniels agency, 32 Degrees Weatherproof to create a co-branded mixer. Live performances by a trending 5 piece band and sponsorship provided by Radeberger Gruppe, (Germany's equivalent of Budweiser). We received rave reviews by 32 Degrees executive team. http://www.pingg.com/public_event/5tqdq3zfq8dx5izdr

(Style Network 2/5/2013)
In February, 2013, my boutique publicity hub, Kissing Lions Public Relations, celebrated its largest television broadcast placement ever, Built; a new design show on The Style Network. From successful pitch to placement this embodied the reason KLPR loves media, content and blogging.
