MUSICIANS & ACTORS:
I believe that you really can make a living with your talents. As a CREATIVITY, PR, and MARKETING COACH, my purpose is to empower you to BUILD CONFIDENCE, ATTRACT SUPER FANS, and ACHIEVE BIG GOALS, without feeling overwhelmed or doubting yourself.
During my 16 years as an arts and entertainment publicist, I have secured international media coverage for hundreds of artists and performers. The talent represented includes Jane’s Addiction’s Perry Farrell, rock singer Sass Jordan, Gordie Johnson-led blues-rock band Big Sugar, legendary punk pioneers DOA, one of South Africa’s best-selling music acts of all time, The Parlotones, actor, singer and author Mackenzie Phillips, Oscar-nominated actor Robert Loggia, radio & TV personality Meredith Shaw, and Pretty Little Liars actor Tyler Blackburn.
Although I have represented celebrities, I feel the most accomplished helping independent artists on their journey. After seeing many of my PR clients struggle to build a career in the arts, I was inspired to become a CERTIFIED COACH. If you want to stop letting fear and a lack of knowledge hold you back, I can guide you with strategies to propel you to the next level.
*For artists and performers that are already thriving (or on their way), I offer PUBLICITY services to get the word out about your latest projects.
Sing! Dance! Act! Thrive!
