In September 2022, I co-founded LucireRouge.com with Jody Miller, with the support of long-time Publisher Jack Yan. This new member of the Lucire family of global fashion and lifestyle magazines spotlights goods, services, and media from small businesses and entrepreneur producers.
In 2010, I co-founded, created, and assigned the content of Liquid Living Magazine, which focused on home entertaining, travel, decor and gastronomy. The project included six full issues and a special trade show edition.
In addition to food, beverage and travel (business, family, luxury and budget) topics, my other “beats” include residential interior design, business leader profiles, health + wellness, philanthropy, family + home, beauty, fashion, Jewish human interest, entertainment and weddings. I also do a lot of my own photography when an assignment requires supplementary artwork.
Between 1995-2001, I worked full-time in public relations and advertising agencies. Bosses and clients turned to me to create media kits and business collateral for restaurants, wineries, consumer products and services, entertainment industry projects, fashion and retail stores. Today, I am still active with several P.R. firms as a content provider and writing instructor for their staffers. I use my vast network of contacts and sources to write solid, entertaining and informative copy for placement in different consumer, B-to-B and B-to-C publications. I also have the capabilities to create engaging materials for public relations and marketing applications with a targeted “magazine style” that appeals to readers looking for a sensory experience beyond the text.
