• About ME

    A five-time Emmy award winning former TV news anchor & consumer-investigative reporter.

     

    A social media expert, spokesperson, emcee, & moderator for causes, non-profits & products that make the world a better place.

     

    A ghost writer, adjunct professor, & adventurer who welcomes a challenge & lives fearlessly.

     

    A lifetime of communications experience that has led to the golden hour.

     

    If you are a photographer, the golden hour is that time of day when the light is warm and beautiful and everything glows; everything becomes the best version of itself. If you are a medical professional, it’s that shrinking window of time where harm is mitigated and the chance of recovery is highest. For Golden Hour Communications, it is both, putting you, your message, and your mission in the optimal light at a critical time for maximum impact and exposure.
