About me

I’m the founder of JustReachOut —a SaaS launched in early 2016, which is now used by more than 4,000 small businesses and startups (as well as big ones such as Airbnb, HubSpot, Leadpages and Nickelodeon) to pitch relevant journalists and get press coverage without the help of PR firms.

In 2014 I grew a startup from zero to 40 million pageviews through press outreach, which eventually led to it being acquired by Google.

I've published 1400+ articles and am a contributor for AListApart, Entrepreneur, TheNextWeb, TechCrunch, Mashable, Huffington Post, WIRED and many others.

In my spare time I run an invite only 1 on 1 PR coaching program called PRThatConverts where I help 300+ entrepreneurs use content, SEO and creative PR outreach to gain the exposure and publicity they deserve on their own without any PR firms.
