NOTICE: I'm a public relations consultant in NYC. From time to time I will write favorable posts about my clients because I believe in my clients and their causes. At that time, I will disclose any relationship with the client. Consider this statement as adequate disclosure for all my possible conflicts of interest now and in the future. Additionally, all material on this site should be considered my personal opinion and may not represent that of my clients. This includes my comments on other sites as well as anything I say in person. Finally, it should be noted that the opinions of guest bloggers do not necessarily reflect my own.
