— Nyi Nyein Aye, CEO & Managing Director, ThitsaWorks (Myanmar/NYC)

brand strategy + messaging

“Scott certainly gives all of himself at all times. He was very diligent throughout our many months working together. He saw my brand and my vision, and raised it higher. He saw it all from the future and brought it to my present. His ability to truly feel your work and articulate it so well, always impressed me. He took his time to get to know my process, my personality, my vision and then listened and listened for hours. I am also grateful for who he has been since our work ended. He continues to look out for me and connect me to the right resources. If you were to hire Scott you would also gain a lifelong friend. He believes in the work as much as you do. That has been my consistent experience of him. And I am forever grateful.”

— Christina Rasmussen, founder, Second Firsts

brand strategy + messaging

“Fantastic job lining up interviews and meetings for Mike [Brune, RAN's executive director] while he was on the East Coast. Some of those reporter sit-downs should pay real dividends for us in the future (the Reuters chat already has).... I wish we had you two for the rest of the book tour.”

— Sam Haswell, (then) Communications Director, Rainforest Action Network (RAN)

“Scott was the driving force behind two very successful pro bono marketing projects for NYCfNAC, a nonprofit in New York City that provides financial education and support to low-income communities. He has since joined another project to help Vocational Foundation, a nonprofit that provides job training to young adults. Scott's dedication and work product are superlative; he ranks with some of the very best pro bono consultants I have seen out of the more than 600 corporate volunteers with whom Taproot Foundation has engaged in New York.”

— Blake Smith, (then) Senior Manager of Programs, Taproot Foundation

brand strategy + message development

"From start to finish, Scott's management of the complementary publicity campaign for my book was extremely professional. It was invaluable to have access to his keen understanding of the US media, his counsel on what works and what doesn't, and his ability to identify both the novel, as well as the more obvious messages. We could never have achieved this volume of coverage without him."

Your drive and enthusiasm helped to make this one of the most fulfilling experiences of our life! Lots of love!"

— Markell Brooks Kiefer and Tyson Forbes Lien, founders of TigerLions Arts

— Stephen Kent, Kent Communications


"It is a challenge for NYCfNAC to work collaboratively with the credit unions and to amalgamate their opinions and shape a coherent outcome. Therefore, you should know that the LEAP brochure has been extremely well received by the credit unions. They were emphatic about the quality, look and message and thought the photos were of actual credit union members. That means that you nailed the look and feel we wanted to project.... We have been encouraged by the response we've received and now must reinforce the message through further mailings."

— Peter Bray, Executive Director, New York City Financial Network Action Consortium (NYCfNAC)

He is a natural self-starter, very comfortable working independently and with minimal direction."
