Entrepreneurship and experimentation at the intersection of traditional publishing, digital product design, and savvy authorship
For the past five years I’ve been founding and leading companies in content design and author management, building projects for sports legends, Oscar-winning actors, Grammy-winning musicians, beloved comedians, notable journalists, ground-breaking thought leaders, and Edgar, LAMBDA, and Pushcart finalist novelists. Currently, I manage ambitious and innovative book packaging initiatives for media companies, entrepreneurial authors, growing brands, start-ups, and organizations of all kinds. I also teach Digital Publishing at the City University of New York, City College, sit on the advisory board of numerous technology start-ups in the publishing space, and speak frequently around the country on matters within publishing, technology, and author management.
Just released, a new Kindle Single that offers an intimate portrait of the real Lee Harvey Oswald, a troubled young man from a fractured family--based on public records, key interviews with Marguerite Oswald and other family members, and Oswald's own writings and statements.
