With Courage, and stealth, she’ll relentlessly seek a way around, over or through to get the task done.

Don blends the best of "old school" marketing savvy and today's technical strategies to leverage each layer of a marketing endeavor. Don's genius is pairing clients with unparalleled and unique opportunities to engage with like minded companies or tap into untapped markets.
Since way back at Baruch College, he’s relished working with “high profile” people, such as Joe Namath and Andy Kaufman, and creating ridiculously successful marketing programs for events such as the Los Angeles and New York City Marathons, The Indy 500 and countless others.
Where others feel faint from the intensity of putting on an event, Don is recharged by it. Not only is he a passionate promoter, but when it comes to making something appear “larger than life” most small businesses only wish they had a guy like him to paint that image. Over the years working with countless brands, manufacturers and celebrities has allowed Don to hone his keen skills in “pairing” the best relationships to get transactions done. His ability to form one-of-a-kind alliances and package deals broke ground for other firsts including becoming the first company in 100 years to procure branding partnerships between leading manufacturers and VF Brands, Lee and Wrangler Jeans and Vera Wang.
Don has a brutally honest, yet endearing business style. Thus, when it comes to entrepreneurial and non-traditional sales and marketing Don is unstoppable. Making high level opportunities available to any size business has become his signature. His creative bulldog approach has made Don a reckoning force to motivate decision makers, drive sales and elevate project potentials.
