"I’ve worked closely with Joel over the years on a number of highly-visible private sector marketing launch initiatives. Joel, a consummate PR professional, was very instrumental in helping me clearly articulate the outbound messaging platform for my launch activities and in also developing an ongoing company-wide communications plan that ensured the success of my marketing and communications programs. Joel is collaborative by nature, articulate and a very effective writer and communicator. If you’re looking to complement your “A” team, this communications professional is a key individual to have on your team!"

Paul Bender, Director Marketing, Beta Systems AG


"At Secure Software we thought our original requirements for Joel were strictly Press and PR related. It became clear almost immediately that Joel understood the start-up world and was capable of managing and driving a much broader range of marketing related activities from sales tool creation to tradeshow participation. Joel operates outside the scope in a very effective way, and acts more like a true business partner as opposed to a pure play marketing consultant. He played an integral role in the launch of our marketing operation and the results were tremendous. Joel’s assistance was instrumental in getting our marketing operation launched.  I would give Joel my highest recommendation and will gladly act as a reference.”

Kevin Kernan, President & CEO, Secure Software (acquired)

"I think you have done great work for us."

 Bill Kapner, President , Bigdough (acquired)

"Let’s pause for a moment...To thank you both for the remarkable and unparalleled support you provide our store.  When we started this gig, I was skeptical.  No way. We jumped in and from the get-go have been thrilled with what you do for us.  You have our business figured out better than we at times. Your generosity of spirit, energy and time is endless. You have insinuated yourselves into the bowels of our retail operation.  Your steady hands, your great taste, your wisdom are a perfect fit for us.  Every day customers rave about our emails, our website and our videos.  You have brought an incredibly important dimension to our shop.  So for all of this and more we say THANK YOU."

Amalia Jones, Manager and Debbie Danielson Owner, Forecast Store

"Joel is an accomplished professional with the tenacity to achieve long-term communication goals. Joel builds relationships and creates far-sighted strategies. I was thrilled with the coverage he achieved for our education and charitable programs."

Beth Judy, Program Manager, Washington Architectural Foundation


"Joel is an energetic and creative public relations expert who quickly assessed and understood our company's complex technical capabilities, and launched our highly successful media outreach program. Joel is a first rate writer and PR visionary who sees opportunities to continually position us at the leading edge of defense, aerospace, and technology news. In doing so, he has produced a long string of well written, thoughtful, and compelling news stories and press releases since he started to work with us in 2007, and has seeded those stories through his existing and ever expanding network of media organizations. The result is regular coverage for our company in print and online including coverage in Wired | Danger Room, The Economist, The Boston Globe, Washington Post, The Boston Business Journal, The Dayton Business Journal, DefenseNews, and Military Training Technology."

Debra McNeely, Director Corporate Communications, Aptima

"This project was about more than just about redeveloping CRC’s website.  It was an exercise that allowed us to step back and objectively define what our business was about and how to best communicate those messages in the terms and a voice that spoke to our market.” 

 Andrew O'Neill, Director of Business Development, CRC Commercial  

“I have used Joel and DCPR on projects and initiatives over the years and he has consistently delivered on our public relations efforts. Joel is knowledgeable and capable when it comes to marketing in the technology domains and has achieved excellent results for us in highly competitive markets. I continue to use DCPR and recommend Joel to anyone looking for focused and effective PR support, both traditional and online, without the overhead costs of the big agencies.”

Neil Oatley, VP Marketing, Kratos Defense & Security

"Atlantic has grown to be one of the top 10 developers in the Washington region, yet our website didn't reflect the stature of the organization. From the initial brand evaluation and repositioning strategy through the site architecture, design, and content, DCPR’s team created an outstanding website and communications platform for Atlantic. They were right on the mark."

 Vicki Salamon, Marketing Consultant,  Atlantic Realty

"Well done. The press coverage and exposure have exceeded what we expected. Your media contacts, real estate knowledge, and PR skills have really paid off. We’re extremely happy with the brochure and website too."

M. Scott Copeland, Principal, RST Development

“Thanks for the great public relations work – we’ve gotten some excellent articles. We really appreciate your flexibility and responsiveness as well. Look forward to continued work with DCPR.”


Hilton H. Augustine, Jr., CEO, GMSI
