When I founded LJPR seven years ago, I had no idea the exciting journey I was about to embark upon. After college, I began work as a freelance journalist and then turned to PR, promotions and event management. My first major job in promotions began when I worked for Mercury Records as a promotions assistant. While there, I had the privilege to promote and work with recording artists such Vanessa Williams, Boyz II Men, Bon Jovi, and the Robert Cray Band, to name a few.
My skills continued to expand as I moved from the music industry to nonprofits to corporate entities. In 2000, I moved to Dubai, United Arab Emirates where I worked as an account manager for FP7 and managed the corporate communications of high-profile companies and organizations such as UPS, Xerox, Gillette, Lucent Technologies and the World Wide Fund for Nature.
Over time, friends and colleagues started to seek out my marketing and business advice and before I knew it, I was an entrepreneur and a certified independent marketing consultant advising clients on what web design, PR, strategic marketing, and social media could do for their personal brands. Today, my client list includes entrepreneurs, award-winning filmmakers, directors, artists and other business professionals.
MY LATEST PROJECTS
