MidtownPR is a boutique agency. We select the best partners in all sectors to work with our clients, building a best-in-class team of experienced leaders.

And we're privileged to work with outstanding clients and principled people in media, business and government, across Canada, the United States, Great Britain and Germany.

My own background over 35 years combines reporting experience for Canada’s largest newspaper with providing senior communications counsel to both public and private sector organizations.

After stops at Queen’s Park, Parliament Hill and Washington DC for the Toronto Star, I switched gears a year after 9/11 and accepted a job as Managing Editor of PGATOUR.com at Tour headquarters at the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. After starting out as a sportswriter, it was not only a full-circle moment, it launched my second career in public relations.

Returning home to Toronto, I have had the distinct privilege  of leading teams to coordinate communications strategies for large corporations and government agencies and departments, both as the Senior Vice President of one agency, then General Manager and Senior Partner at a global PR agency. I created MidtownPR in 2013 to coincide with the launch of my book "Crisis Communications in the 24/7 Social Media World", available on Amazon.com and Kindle; in English and Spanish in audio versions. I have worked extensively as a specialist in crisis communications, with an established track record working with complex, contentious issues.

I also conduct training and create leadership platforms for private sector CEOs, heads of non-profits and sports personalities.
