Q: Are you accepting consulting gigs?
I'm always open to hearing about your project, and will be frank with whether it's something I can help with or not. Please contact me.
Q: You seem like you might be a good speaker for an event I'm hosting.
I give talks from time to time. If you're interested, please send me an outline of your event, topic and talk format and we'll take it from there.
Q: Any recommendations for good PR agencies in San Francisco/New york?
Well, I'm biased since I work at an amazing one. However, my best advice is to talk to people you trust and also do your own homework by looking over case studies, seeing who else a firm represents, doing reference checks, etc. Also, be sure you're really ready to bring on a firm before taking the leap; it's a big commitment.
Q: I'm a student/a recent grad/new to SF and need career tips. Help me!
If you're in Brooklyn/Manhattan, I'm happy to grab a quick coffee and help you out (to make it beneficial for both parties I much prefer in-persons over phone). Please email me with a short introduction of who you are, what you're looking for, and why you think I can help you if it's not immediately obvious.
If you are outside NYC, you are probably better off finding someone closer to you who knows your market.
Q: You're aziari on Twitter and a lot of other places online. Are you involved with the men's fashion brand Aziari?
I've been using the "aziari" handle since college—long before someone deemed it a classy name to build a men's fashion brand around. So, no.
