Owner/President

How long have you lived in Oregon? 47 years - by the way, now you know how old I am.

A little bit about yourself? I absolutely love my job. Really, I do. I started my career as a journalist at KGW, another job I loved. After working with a number of publicists, I decided the make the switch over and am so glad that I did. My job allows me to work with some of the best and brightest in the industry - my staff, our clients, the media we’re communicating with - their ideas and creativity inspire me everyday.
