Zach Hoover, Executive Director, LA Voice:

“When we had an urgent need for a strategic social media program to get LA Voice in the online conversation around a national event, Joe was able to hit the ground running immediately and coordinated seamlessly with our staff. He listened well and was very collaborative despite us not having all the runway we wanted for a process of planning. Joe zeroed in on what would be a smart, focused content strategy and didn’t try to take us in any directions that wouldn’t add value. Thanks to his creativity and deep understanding of social media, our Twitter engagement rates went through the roof and we grew our audience substantially in a very short amount of time.”


Skip Winitsky, Director of Programs,

“Our small nonprofit had the opportunity to present our human rights crowd-sourcing platform to Google Ideas and other venture philanthropists. We had a mostly-harmless PowerPoint that Joe turned into a killer — and convincing — roadshow presentation. Not only did he make it look great, he took our ideas and made sure that the most exciting, salient, and important concepts shined through. Joe also took our very limited brand assets and evolved them into a practical library of tools, fonts, and images that we’ll be able to use for a multitude of applications. He’s a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional.”


Shoshanna Scholar, Executive Director, LA Community Health Project:

“When a public policy change threatened some of our organization’s funding, vsbly drafted a communications strategy that helped us effectively channel our program expertise into a tight campaign to address it. With the help of key allies and on-the-ground mobilization, the policy change was reversed – we won.”


Kevin McKeown, Santa Monica City Council Member:

“Joe and I worked together on the campaign at St. John’s, and his professional handling of a contentious process kept the community behind the nurses all the way to a union contract.”


Beth Steckler, Program Director, Move LA:

“We’d had a Facebook page and a twitter handle for some time, but felt we weren’t really maximizing the power of social media. helped us step up our game with a solid strategy and fabulous coaching that opened up a whole new world for us. brought a mix of imaginative content invention and a sharp tactical eye for opportunities and pitfalls, and was surprisingly available for the seemingly stupidest questions as well as when we needed quick and creative problem solving on the fly.’s NationBuilder expertise was a huge plus. After working with, our Facebook engagement doubled and Twitter engagement is five times what it was before – way more than we expected. We recommend without reservation.”
