About us

Now in New York City AND Los Angeles/Orange County!

Dave first met Rob in 1992, when Rob interviewed for a position at the agency where Dave was a senior manager. Upon completion of the interview, Dave’s supervisors asked what he thought of Rob. His response: “He’s either the greatest publicist on earth, or just a master wordsmith.” Turns out it he was right on both accounts. 20 years later, Dave and Rob have progressed from colleagues, to best friends and now (as many suspected would happen) to business partners.
