We are like a taco bar.
You can pick the ingredients you need (services like web or mobile development, video production, social media promotion, pitching to media outlets, content creation/curation) to create your unique, yummy taco (branding, website, video, crowdfunding campaign et al).
I grew up on the rough and tumble streets of pre-gentrified 1970s Brooklyn where I mastered the art of Jew Jitsu – the ancient Hebrew martial art of running away. My fierce determination to wield my pen rather than my sword has led to writing that’s been featured in film and on TV.
If you’re looking for content for your website, a script for your commercial or a narrative for your video – especially humorous content – you’re in the right place.
I am a trained architect who decided to pursue a career both in front of and behind the camera.
I am bilingual and spent eight years working for Hispanic Information and Telecommunications Network, Inc. (HITN TV) as a producer, writer, editor, and on-camera talent for both TV and web projects designed to create value for the Hispanic community.
I am a co-founder of Crowdzu, a marketplace startup in the creative crowdsourcing and crowdfunding spaces. I also build cool WordPress websites for clients, help run a couple of Meetup groups, and an annual Williamsburg, Brooklyn-based film festival.
I frequently collaborate with Michael Helman on all of the above.
Prior to all this I honed my technical skills by doing hardware and software tech support and developing in-house client/server-based applications at American Express.
I started my career building Post Digital NYC, a pioneering computer-based editing facility. Soon after I became a founding partner of Brooklyn Films, an entertainment and new media technology company. There I directed and produced feature films, music videos, TV shows, and commercials. Include my grammy-nominated work as an editor and I have been responsible for thousands of hours of programming.
Next, I started WILLiFEST, a Williamsburg, Brooklyn film festival. Always a technologist, I am also co-founder of a tech startup (Crowdzu.com).
My focus has shifted to editing video projects and providing technology services like livestreaming and video capture of live events. I have also developed numerous WordPress websites and have dabbled in Drupal.
I have been a social media pro since the days of MySpace (talk about a #tbt!). My fascination with human interaction and motivation has led me to study the world of psychology, a field in which I am currently pursuing my doctoral degree. My research is geared towards the psychology of social media, giving me a deeper understanding of the inner workings of this technological means of communication.
My professional experience as a media publicist dates back to 2011, and since then I have handled social interactions for clients around the world. My personal blogging project “Out There Social” has helped me hone my skills of web development, branding, media management, and content creation.
I am a Social Media Strategist and writer. My love of social media comes from my love of writing and finding just the right words to express ideas. I thrive on making ideas come to life, connecting people and sharing resources through the events and workshops that I host and organize. I frequently write and speak about social media. Metropolicks, the first book that I’ve co-written, is a romantic comedy novel. Currently, I manage the book’s social media which includes a Facebook page with nearly 25,000 fans. In 2013, I successfully raised over $15,000 through the Making History crowdfunding campaign for my current book project, the memoir of Su Beng, a Taiwanese revolutionary, activist and historian.
I offer the following wide range of services:
- Social Media services offered include: assessment of existing social media; creation/development of social media strategy; plan, manage and schedule social media postings
- Writing services offered include: web content writing, editing, and blog post writing
- Crowdfunding services offered include: pre-crowdfunding campaign launch consultation, and crowdfunding campaign management
