Get the attention you deserve
We help technology startups develop a DIY PR and communications strategy that delivers outstanding, reliable, and measurable results.
You don’t need to hire a full-time PR agency
Journalists and other influencers don’t want to communicate with an agency—they want to talk to you
For the price equivalent of a one-time monthly retainer, we’ll work with you to develop a comprehensive PR strategy and show you how you can easily execute it within your team to take control of your story.
Without an effective PR strategy, your company’s spectacular work will never be properly noticed. We’ll show you how to approach the right people, with the right message, at the right time.
It’s time to stand out and get people talking.

Founder & Principal
Brandon has been involved with PR and marketing for more than 18 years. He’s worked with brand new startups, well-known companies with hundreds of millions of users, and everything in-between. He’s served as a Global PR Lead, Account Director, Social Media Practice Lead, and a Product / Technology / Brand Advocate while working with companies both directly and through other agencies.
Additionally, Brandon started blogging and writing about technology before people even knew what a blog was. He was a columnist for over 11 years, and he still contributes to publications such as Fast Company, Entrepreneur, Adweek, Wired, and The Next Web.
Brandon is also the creator of the award-winning Leopard programming language, which was a tool that made it easy for anyone to create their own software. Thanks in part to a partnership with WeatherBug, Leopard was able to reach a large community of users and students.
