OUR TEAM

Nancy Donner has worked with some of the most gifted writers, editors, publicists, marketers, designers, web producers, photographers, and videographers in New York City. Many of these talented people have made themselves available to work with Nancy on assignments as needed.

Among those resources include these professionals:

Ron Goldberg is a marketing and communications professional with experience in both corporate and non-profit sectors, including AmFAR, The New School, Proteus Fund, and global law firms Thelen and Linklaters. As a writer and project manager, he has created and produced marketing collateral and client-facing materials in both print and digital media. His broad marketing background ranges from designing and implementing internal communications plans to developing and executing external business development strategies, from supervising and developing RFP responses to managing day-to-day marketing support staff, and from event planning to website development.

Laurie Krauz's remarkably diverse background spans the corporate, health care, image, and entertainment industries. Her expertise in the art of effective and compelling communication techniques - from interview and presentation coaching to public speaking and media training - has made her a frequent presenter at law firms, corporations, financial institutions, and universities, including Proskauer Rose LLP, Sony/BMG, and John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Laurie's work has been featured internationally on BBC television and in numerous publications throughout the U.S.

Neal Leibowitz has spent three decades as a copywriter and creative director for the entertainment industry. An alumnus of full-service agencies Serino/Coyne and Diener/Hauser/Bates, he has created ad campaigns and collateral materials in all media for Disney on both coasts (and lived to tell about it). He brings a show-biz honed sensibility to retail, corporate and not-for-profit clients as well as major Hollywood studios and Broadway's most prestigious producers.

Gary Martin is an illustrator, animator and motion graphics designer who has the vision to create, the Intelligence to prioritize complicated needs, the experience to use technology wisely, and the whimsy to make projects snap. Using a variety of tools and techniques—from charcoal drawings to 3-D video effects, and from simple banner ads to short-form animations—Gary creates engaging content. Among his clients are Penguin Group, Little Brown Books, WNET-TV.com, Y&R, and Dentsu.

Video editor Alan Morris is an innovative brand storyteller with 25 years experience. His passion is the communication of the "Big Idea," whether it's a 15-second commercial or a 15-minute web video. Not just an editor, Alan has a keen understanding of client needs and partners with them to create the most compelling TV, broadcast, and web messaging. His clients include American Express, Red Cross, Partnership for Drug Free America, Parsons The New School for Design, and New York-Presbyterian.

Lindy Regan is a writer and editor who has conceived and written television, video, radio, and audio scripts; ad and promotional copy; speeches and talking points; web content; press releases; and magazine articles for clients including The New School, Discovery, The New Jersey Repertory Company, The New York Public Library, The Century Foundation, several authors, and two former Pythons. She has been a publicist, a talk radio producer, and a director of more than 100 audio books for Audible, Inc. and a variety of major publishers.

Kara Van Woerden is a graphic designer, art director, and conceptualizer. Her clients include The New York Public Library, the Smithsonian National Museum of The American Indian, The New-York Historical Society, The Museum of Biblical Art, New York University, and The New School.

Ellen White has served as an editorial and media consultant for The Museum of Modern Art, The New School, New York City Ballet, NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, and The Carnegie Museum of Art, among other cultural and educational institutions, crafting website content, mission statements, speeches, and media campaigns.
