About

Credible Context is a communications consultancy based in San Francisco, CA.  It is built on the insight that effective marketing — of products, services, even the company itself — requires more than commitment, authenticity and transparency. Advocacy and persuasion must be contextually credible.

My mission is to help clients reveal, cultivate and leverage the power of their context.  My goal is to help make every communication — internal or external, casual or formal — a voice of advocacy.

In founding this consultancy, I have drawn upon my experience in the financial and corporate communications landscape of New York City, the issues-driven meeting rooms of Washington, D.C. and the technology arena in San Francisco.  This combination of industries and locales has given me valuable, additional perspective as finance, legislation and technology are three, key drivers of change.  Credible Context is, in many ways, the logical result of a communications career begun 35 years ago.

Currently or in the course of my counseling career, I have worked closed on issues related to ICANN, registries and registrars.  Some of those clients are: Pool.com, NeuStar, TRUSTe and the Coalition for ICANN Transparency.
