Marketing Truth From an Expert Trade Journalist

Marketing insights from an expert industry trade journalist

(Note: If you may be changing plans for events because of the coronavirus outbreak, I can offer in-person or virtual marketing keynotes and workshops from my home office in Tel Aviv.)

A former newspaper editor​ and director of marketing in the high-tech industry, I am now a professional keynote marketing speaker and member of Toastmasters International as well as the writer of The Promotion Fix column for The Drum.

I use my prior careers in journalism and marketing to show businesses, conferences, and universities the true present and future of the marketing industry as a neutral observer with nothing to sell. In 2019, I served as a judge of the UK Ad Association’s Young Lions competition in advance of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

Born and raised in the United States, I am now based out of Tel Aviv.
