Having been a freelance writer for 6 years, mainly focusing on events promotion and coverage, I know what kinds of information makes a press release stand out and what editors and writers are looking for in stories. I was also a d.j. for three years in college for my school’s radio station (WYRE), so I’m familiar with what catches radio station personnel’s attention. I have multiple friends in the entertainment industry including musicians, burlesque dancers, actors, promoters, club managers, d.j.s, and record label owners. I have written a number of press releases for them and have successfully gotten them published. I’ve got a number of connections in local media, established during my time as a freelance writer and publicist, and always get a good response to press releases I send out.
I have an Associate of Art and Science Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Waukesha and a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communication and Environmental Science from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
