Consulting

I am currently editor in chief of ManAboutWorld, the first and only gay travel magazine designed specifically, ground-up for the iPad. We launched in summer 2012, and we are doing really well! As of winter 2014 we have nearly 18,000 app users and thousands of paying subscribers. We sell advertising and sponsorships at a variety of price points (click here to learn more). Still we are a new  business.

Neither my business partner nor myself are making the big bucks (yet:) so meantime I do very selective consulting. I’m available to help companies reach the lucrative LGBT travel segment. I can help with strategy, marketing, PR, media relations, advertorial and advise on the creation of successful press trips. We can get on the phone for an hour’s worth of advice (at a reasonable rate) or I can help create a marketing plan for you to run with. I am also an engaging, talented and sought-after public speaker on the subject of LGBT tourism/travel marketing, PR, communications, business strategy and travel safety & security.
