Get Social with TJ:

Writer, Designer, 21st Century Renaissance Man

There, I've said it. I don't know how else to describe myself. I am a writer and an artist, a teacher and a student, a musician, an entertainer, and an athlete; a man of many interests and passions. I am a split-brained individual who is equally fascinated by words and by numbers. I take full advantage of every opportunity I have to learn about the world around me.

That may be why I find writing and creating artwork so much fun. I love to solve puzzles. I love to figure out how people think and what motivates them to action. I also enjoy using words and images to influence people in positive, meaningful ways.

To me, publicity is more than just barking at people and trying to make them buy something. Publicity is about acquainting the public with a company's human side. After all, even the largest corporation is nothing more than a collection of people. Publicity to me is about inviting people to see what makes a product unique rather than forcing it upon them. Some call it the art of the soft sell. I call it common sense.
