Smartphone are the bulk of our digital media diet

Smartphones eat about a quarter of our day, a seven percent increase from last year. Digital media has eaten up more and more of the average American’s time, starting with just 2.7 hours a day a decade ago. Nearly all that growth has come from the amount of time people spend on smartphones, while computer time has declined, and connected device time has inched up only slightly. While digital media hours have been climbing, they are projected to plateau in the coming years, evidenced by the shrinking growth rate.

Based in Washington, DC, I specialize in thought leader communications and global public policy for public affairs professionals working at the intersection of globalization, disruption, and politics.

Clients hire me to ghostwrite, engage influencer networks, manage media relations, produce events, audit their communications infrastructure, consult on hiring, provide issue briefs and news generating talking points, as well as manage end to end communications projects where I assume a role of project leader and general contractor.

I work independently but provided access to a substantial global network of collaborators with expertise in websites, graphic design, audio, video, polling, data analytics, and research.

Using the latest tactics of an American political campaign with expertise shaped by being a practitioner of global business communications, I help clients tell their story and build trusted relationships with all necessary stakeholders.

Successful communications are all about STOCK = strategy, tactics, organization, consistency, and know-how.
