Need a voice for a project?  Use someone who knows transportation and who's been a success in some of the toughest markets and environments.  Every day tens of thousands of people hear me in a variety of places … the NYC subways, the AirTrain at JFK and Newark airports, on the phone greeting callers to the Port Authority of NY & NJ and promoting organizations such as IBTTA, Sensys Networks and NJ Transit.  I'd welcome the opportunity to help your organization tell its story.  Please check my website for more samples of my work and to contact me.
