Public Relations Specialist, Publicist

Summary

As a food publicist, I take the lead in promoting chefs and their restaurants so that they can spend their time doing what they do best—making delicious food. I handle all aspects of marketing and promotion including communications with the media, developing a professional online presence (including website and social media development), the writing and release of press releases, taking the photos that must be included, and the production of video for YouTube. All of these skills are put to use to build and protect strong brands in the Orange County food industry.
