You win! (April Fool!)

Having been in the PR business since William Henry Harrison sat in the Oval Office (however briefly), I thought I’d seen every twist and permutation in the mating ritual otherwise known a new bu [...] view full post >

About Steve

I’m a climber, comedian and dog lover. But not necessarily in that order. I also happen to be co-founder and CEO of Peppercomm, a strategic communications firm headquartered in NYC, and with offices in San Francisco, Boulder and London.

I’m most proud of:

• Watching my two children being born
• Summiting the highest peaks in Africa and Europe
• Raising more than $50,000 for charities by hosting stand-up comedy shows
• Seeing Peppercomm be named NYC’s top workplace by Crain’s New York Business in 2012.

FYI, we beat 930 other organizations in the process and the recognition provided us with our 2013 rallying cry of “Nowhere to go but down.”

I bang out two columns each, and every week, for Inc.com, publish a daily blog called Repman and have had the opportunity to appear on CNBC, MSNBC, NPR, and a host of other top tier media over the years.

One final thing: I derive immense satisfaction from mentoring college students and counseling fellow marketing communications professionals who have lost their way in life. The biggest turn on in life is helping others.
