Welcome to



From 1985 to 2022 I had the honor of founding and leading one of the most successful global media management consulting and executive search firms in the industry.  Headquartered in New York City, we served media and entertainment conglomerates, TV networks, sports entities, music publishers, record labels, the fashion industry, advertising agencies, the Fortune 50-500, and the U.S. Government globallyExamples at every level.

Through the years we helped build some of the most successful and profitable media entities in the, TV, entertainment, telecommunications, and media technology industries.  Our firm also managed production personnel and BO&E for The New York Yankees, Knicks Basketball, NY Rangers Hockey, Liberty Basketball and events from Radio City Music Hall.



In 2013 my wife and I founded KissMyKite to support philanthropic efforts for children's sports initiatives. 


The fashion, music & sports industries have been tremendous supporters of KissMyKite over the years and we have participated at NYFW, STYLE, Miami Swim Week, Art Hearts Fashion, Miami Tennins and even recently at Art Basel Miami.   At fixed venues or exotic locations internationally we combine fashion, sports, art and music to produce media that supports a great cause.


KissMyKite donates and directs 100% of all proceeds to Children's Sports initiatives.  We accept no money and arrange for direct contributions.  For many years, my wife and I have matched funds and during COVID there was a noted hiatus but our goals always remained the same.     We strive to have deserving children in Summer sports clinics and camps each year, that normally, could not attend.


In 2018 we also helped fund the Tony & Helene Filson Baseball Camp in Aruba where tuition was subsidized by KissMyKite.  This effort was helped greatly by FX Sports Aruba and their CEO Wim Eelens who held auctions during Aruba Hi-Winds and donated merchandise generously in conjunction with Fashion Designer Olga Papkovitch and her publishing company.  Thank you to ESPN, The ESPY Awards, BRAUN and Wilson Sports, the kids loved your donations.
