I never dreamed my career would include such a delicate mix of writing, editing, boy bands and Beanie Babies -- but after 10 years of unique marketing, branding and publishing
experiences, I can't imagine it any other way.
I have created magazines, ads, Web sites and marketing programs that strengthen client relations and provide concrete ROI results. I've been able to:
Launch a teen magazine with a circulation of 1 million, coordinating editorial and promotional efforts that ranged from blow-in cards to making television appearances;
Work on more than a dozen Web site redesign projects;
Write for national and local publications, including Life & Style Weekly, Celebrity Living, the Chicago Tribune, Centerstage Chicago, Club & Resort Business, Interest.com, Legal Management, Nielsen Media, Metromix, Where Chicago, Midwest Home Chicago and more;
Write and edit books on topics including Hilary Duff, tech gadgets, Furby, The Beatles and more;
Create fully integrated marketing programs and serve as client contact for Fortune 500 and other clients ranging from Janus to Ty Inc. to American Music Group;
Serve as contributing editor for the McDonald's 50th Anniversary Book and edit the Ronald McDonald House Charities' Annual Report;
Spearhead a company-wide rebranding project, teach journalism classes to industry professionals and write ad copy and coverlines for more than 30 publications.
As the owner of Chicago Journalist Media, I can do all that -- and more -- for you.
